Serco Middle East (ME) has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with SaveFast Training Academy, one of the region’s leading Health Safety and Environment (HSE) training providers, at this week’s LEAP event.

Industry sources added that this MOU marks a huge commitment by the public service company to boost safety and upskill local talent in Saudi Arabia using SaveFast’s innovative training and technology solutions. 

Industry sources further added that the SaveFast Training Academy boasts state-of-the-art facilities in both Riyadh and the UAE, with a diverse range of HSE, driver training, and technology solutions. These incorporate the use of virtual reality technology, behavior-based telematics, and HSE technologies, that create lasting, impactful training for employees.

Industry sources also added that this partnership between Serco and SaveFast Training Academy aids the requirements of the Saudi Government ministries, such as the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs, and the Ministry of Tourism as they seek to foster local capabilities in line with Vision 2030 and Saudi nationalization goals. Saudi Nationals will have the opportunity to gain safety qualifications through SaveFast Training Academy before learning continues in a real-work environment with Serco.

Through this synergy, we are setting new benchmarks for workforce readiness, essential for the dynamic growth envisioned by Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.”

Industry sources added that through their combined capabilities SaveFast and Serco will boost the services they offer to current and future clients in the UAE and KSA through the HSE Training Academy, on-site tailored training courses, and robust analysis of safety data. This initiative will offer the insights and data essential for predicting and preventing workplace incidents, whether in office environments or on construction sites across cities, major developments, or giga projects.
