Khaleej Times reported that Qatargas has won the prestigious International Safety Award from the British Safety Council, following grueling tests by an independent adjudicating panel. Mr Aniruddha Ghaisas plant safety officer at Qatargas’ safety, environment & quality department received the award at the International Safety Award Winners’ Banquet in London.
Qatargas recently completed 6 years without lost time incident offshore and 5 years onshore on its operating facilities. Upon completion of the ongoing expansion projects, Qatargas will raise its annual LNG production to nearly 42 million tonnes.
Mr Faisal al Suwaidi CEO of Qatargas said that "This award is testimony to Qatargas’ relentless pursuit of safety excellence. Safety is a core value in Qatargas and takes priority over everything else. We want all our people to go home safely at end of the day, this is what forms the basis of our safety philosophy. I would like to congratulate all those involved for winning this award and at the same time remind everyone that safety is the personal responsibility of each and every individual."
Qatargas officials said that "Winners must have good safety policies, plans and commitment to health and safety at the highest level and also be endeavoring to improve the safety culture within their organization. They must detail their health and safety officers’ qualifications and provide information about significant advances they have made in health and safety for the year."
Mr Brian Nimick CEO of British Safety Council said that "For more than 50 years, we have led the way in promoting health, safety and environmental best practice in society. In the 21st century, many organizations worldwide are now making health and safety a top priority. Through achieving an International Safety Award, Qatargas is helping to make our vision of a safe working environment a reality."
