“Umar led multiple campaigns, including Stop Work Authority, People-Based Safety and Injury-Free December, which enabled him to win the trust of people. His unique sense of humor made him the key member in off-the-job activities. He highlights lessons learned from the world-famous book ‘What Went Wrong’ to help people learn from real incidents. His ability to communicate and delegate made him an important team leader within management and employees. He is also the member of the off-the-job safety committee.”
