Privates select ECOVISION
As a part of its growth strategy, in 2020 ECOVISION entered the Omani market of private services.
The company is now providing waste collection equipment (bins and skips) and collection services to private establishments, predominantly in Muscat and South Sharqiyah Governorates. Up to the end of February 2021, ECOVISION has acquired 34 new contracts across these two governorates, and also a contract in Al Wusta Governorate in Duqm. The most notable contracts include the popular residential complex Dolphin Village, Outlets of Saud Bahwan, Sultan Qaboos University Hospital and Al Marai.
Diversification is also among the plans for the company. Recently, ECOVISION received a special license for hazardous waste collection, and has already secured a contract related to this service.
The company hopes to increase the current revenue and also expand into other governorates, once the market picks up after the financially unstable period of the COVID-19 pandemic.

ECOVISION reaches 4 million accident-free hours
Since 2017, ECOVISION has invested heavily on preventive safety measures, such as training (risk management, operationalization of equipment, defensive driving and first aid, among others) and a daily awareness moment before the start of fieldwork. These measures proved to be of great success to avert accidents, leading to the mark of one million hours of work without accidents at the end of that same year.
Meanwhile, the company updated its “success formula” adding internal risk assessment measures and regular inspections and audits, aiming the continuing prevention of work related accidents.
In August 2020, ECOVISION reached 4 million working hours without work accidents, reflecting the importance of the human element for the organization and of group work in the pursuit of its goals.
COVID-19: good practices
During the current global pandemic, ECOVISION continues following its values in which safety and the well-being of its employees take on the main concern.
Early on new action plans were drafted, as well as improvement and adjustment of existing contingency plans. Besides distributing thousands of masks, gloves and protective goggles, encouraging social distance procedures and daily monitoring the temperature and health of its employees, 1500 liters of sanitary gel and liquid soap were also purchased.
As additional protection measures, temporary quarantine areas were created in all housing labor camps and the administrative area started working remotely.
At the same time, all ECOVISION’s service centers have created cleaning brigades and are providing additional disinfection services for containers and public roads, improving the quality of life of the populations they serve.
