Modon conducted periodic inspection visits to ensure the integrity and readiness of firefighting systems in factories and to check for chemical leaks over 2020. We conducted 2,890 field visits during which we checked the robustness of storage conditions and reported any hazard-related observations. We also developed corrective measures and monitored their implementation

Special Fire Teams
Modon is committed to promoting safety and security inside our industrial cities; 2020 witnessed the implementation of many firefighting and rescue projects as part of efforts to facilitate the fastest possible response rate in case of emergencies, disasters or accidents as well as minimizing potential losses.
Five firefighting and rescue stations were established in Sudair City for Industry and Businesses, Al-Kharj Industrial City, Al-Madina Al-Munawwara Industrial City, Dammam Third Industrial City and Jeddah Second Industrial City. We also launched a rapid intervention unit at Asir Industrial City. To raise service standards, work is currently underway to integrate fire stations with factories through a smart system that triggers an alarm in the event of an emergency, allowing firefighting teams to respond swiftly
Ensuring the security of Modon’s employees and facilities has always been a top priority and we work hard to ensure we have the necessary human and technical resources to fulfil this commitment. 2020 witnessed the implementation of several development plans to manage and protect traffic and promote general safety. We also developed many supporting mechanisms that had a positive impact on overall security performance and minimized violations and infringements.
Improved performance levels and reduced violations additionally came through projects launched to monitor our facilities. We developed industrial safety and security solutions through the recruitment of qualified personnel and implementation of modern processes. Our security vehicles have also been equipped with advanced tracking systems and surveillance cameras to help monitor and improve the quality of security performance and ensure a safe environment that protects investments.
Maintenance and operation
Modon conducted an extensive review in 2020 of the best international practices in maintenance and operation. We developed programs that aim to increase preparation levels in case of crises and preserve the asset value of our facilities and industrial cities. Our programs cover all types of maintenance including preventive and predictive maintenance, monitoring, production operations and other protective measures. We also developed plans to increase operational efficiency through the latest technologies. Quality assessment indicators and other administrative procedures and policies were established, reducing the operational and maintenance costs of industrial cities and increasing the standard of services Modon provides to its partners.
