Raising international worker welfare standards


Two of Jacobs’ project leaders, David Bennett and Bruce Chalmers, recently took part in a live masterclass webinar to overview Jacobs’ role on Qatar Rail’s Doha Metro mega-project. Facilitated by Mark Hansford, New Civil Engineer (NCE) magazine editor, Bennett and Chalmers discussed how Qatar Rail and Jacobs worked closely together to create a step-change in safety culture and worker welfare standards.
