Best Practices

Quality Control

Tosson Islam, Supervisor Quality Control and Dive Master organized and conducted EFR (Emergency First Response) courses for our tour leaders. They learned and practiced medic first aid skills. All of them successfully completed the training, passed the exams and received their certificates.

We will continue training all our staff in customer contact in these First Aid skills.
Keep up this excellent program, Tosson, which is unique among Egyptian tourism companies.

General Info

Our IT department sent all staff an e-mail asking them to urgently organize their data and separate their personal from their business data, informs Ayman Ragab.
Our backup plan process is running slow as most of the users still did not organize their data nor removed the unwanted programs.

Mr. Mohamed Foad, IT department, informs all staff that browsing the net for illegal sites and game sites is absolutely forbidden at Emeco.

These sites are often infected with virus and have caused in the past, and will cause in the future, serious problems with our IT department as well as problems at the computer location from which access was established.
The most critical PCs are from the Egypt Air System, which requires direct internet connection. That way no filtering and no controlling of any internet contents are being done and the system can easily jam. The IT department has no manpower and time to handle such cases and the internet bandwidth is allocated for business use, only, and not for jokes or games


There is no elevated danger to contract swine flue and no need to wear face masks.

So far only isolated cases have been known in Egypt.

Even those who contracted it had not more problems than with a normal flue, it is dangerous only for the very young, the very old and sick. If you want to protect yourself, frequently wash your hands and don’t shake hands if you can avoid it.


A wise man said: if you want to be happy one day, catch a fish, You’ll be happy for one week, if you slaughter a cow, and one month, if you win in the lottery.
You’ll be happy one year, when you marry.

But if you want to be happy all your life: dedicate your work to a profession you love.

Here we see examples of jobs well done by professionals who are proud to serve their clients.

It is remarkable how often our drivers have been lauded,- their skills and careful, defensive driving contribute a lot to our clients’ satisfaction with Emeco’s services.
