From MEC Graduate to QHSE Specialist in the Oil & Gas Industry – Sara Al Abri

I’m thrilled to share my journey with you, from graduating at Middle East College to my current role as a QHSE Specialist in the Oil & Gas sector.

In 2017, I proudly walked across the stage at Middle East College, clutching my Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering. Little did I know how this educational foundation would shape my career in the years to come.

The turning point came during my final year project when my innate curiosity, critical thinking, effective communication, and collaborative spirit caught the attention of a company’s team. Their interest led to my first opportunity, where I started as a trainer. This marked the beginning of a journey that would take me places I hadn’t even dreamed of.

After graduation, I transitioned into the role of HSE Manager at Al Tasnim Group, gaining valuable experience and knowledge. My career continued to ascend as I became a QHSE Team Leader at Averda, a leading waste management contractor for Oman Environment Holding Service Company LLC.

Fast forward to today, I find myself in the role of a QHSE Specialist at Enerflex Company, a prominent player in the Oil & Gas industry, with over six years of invaluable experience under my belt. This journey has been about continuous growth and learning.

Recognizing the importance of professional certifications, I pursued a Vocational Diploma in HSE practices, which is approved by OPAL. Additionally, I achieved certifications as an Internal Auditor for ISO14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018. These credentials have not only enriched my knowledge but also opened doors to new opportunities.

My role entails implementing HSE best practices in alignment with IMS, including ISO9001, 14001 & 45001. To stay ahead in my field, I make sure to stay updated with the latest legislation through reading safety manuals, attending safety seminars, and participating in safety training/awareness courses.

My time at Middle East College was a crucial part of my journey. It equipped me with a wide range of skills, including communication, teamwork-collaboration, self-confidence, project management, data analysis/visualization, and problem-solving. These skills have been instrumental in my career growth.

Being an MEC graduate fills me with immense pride, and I am excited about what the future holds. I am currently considering pursuing master’s degrees at MEC to continue my quest for knowledge and personal development.

I hope my story serves as an inspiration that education and dedication can open doors to limitless opportunities. Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey!
