Lamor recently conducted a specialized OPRC (IMO) Level 1 training for the Saudi Water Academy in Al Jubail. The program, attended by thirty participants, focused on skills essential for oil spill response, reflecting Lamor's dedication to training initiatives highlighting the importance of preparedness and cooperation in safeguarding marine and coastal ecosystems.

Lamor recently delivered a specialized OPRC (IMO) Level 1 training program in Al Jubail for the Saudi Water Academy. This training, equivalent to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) standards, brought together thirty participants, all of whom gained essential practical skills and theoretical knowledge for managing oil spill incidents. The initiative highlights Lamor's commitment to enhancing the capabilities of clients like the Saudi Water Academy, ensuring they are well-prepared for environmental emergencies. 

The International Convention for Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response, and Co-operation (OPRC), is a framework agreement developed by the IMO to help nations and organizations to prepare for and effectively respond to oil spill incidents. This framework includes guidelines and protocols for preparedness and response, emphasizing international cooperation and capacity building. The OPRC Level 1 training focuses on the provision of foundational skills and knowledge which better prepares those attending in responding to an oil spill.

During the training, participants engaged in exercises that simulated actual spill situations. They learned about different oil response strategies and technologies, the use of specialized equipment, and the procedures for cleaning polluted beaches. This practical experience is very valuable, as it bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and real-life application, ensuring that responders are well-prepared for any situation. Lamor's dedication to training initiatives highlights the importance of preparedness and cooperation in safeguarding our planet's marine and coastal ecosystems.
