In alignment with ACK’s corporate social responsibility strategy, and in coordination with Dr. Khaled Al-Khaldi from the College of Engineering and Petroleum at Kuwait University (KU), the ACK Healthy Living Committee visited KU to share their experiences in promoting safe and healthy habits with their students.
Through this initiative, the ACK Healthy Living Committee was able to illustrate KU students that Health and Safety is not merely about policies, protocols and procedures, but also enhances positive lifestyle decision making by expanding their understanding of their physiological needs of maintaining good health and motivation.
Ms. Mariam Al-Maraghi, Health and Safety Manager at ACK, expressed that “Safety, especially behavioral safety, is a way of life. It’s important for us to understand how to take care of our body and mind. With your health, always be proactive.”
The ACK Healthy Living Committee was established as a coordinating team inclusive to ACK students and staff for the purposes of organizing and promoting health and safety initiatives in a positive and engaging way. The Committee is currently involved in major ongoing activities such as hosting ‘Health Days’, events on campus during each semester with a variable theme, as well as annual blood donation drives, in addition to Smoking Awareness campaigns involving visits to local schools.
ACK commits to similar wellness programs, endorsing to the community its beliefs in the importance of health and safety as a core quality of lifestyle improvement.
