Gulf Times Business - - BUSINESS -

Nak­i­lat has been awarded the ‘Sword of Hon­our’ by the Bri­tish Safety Coun­cil for or­gan­i­sa­tions that have reached “the pin­na­cle of ex­cel­lence” in man­ag­ing the com­pany’s health, safety, and en­vi­ron­men­tal risks.

The cer­e­mo­nial sword was re­ceived at a cer­e­mony held re­cently in Lon­don. Nak­i­lat was one of 61 or­gan­i­sa­tions world­wide that re­ceived a Sword of Hon­our, awarded to com­pa­nies which have demon­strated ex­cel­lence in the man­age­ment of health and safety risks at work.

In or­der to com­pete for the Sword of Hon­our, an or­gan­i­sa­tion first has to achieve the max­i­mum five stars in the Bri­tish Safety Coun­cil’s health, safety, and en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment au­dit scheme from Au­gust 2017 to July 2018.

Nak­i­lat also demon­strated to an in­de­pen­dent panel of experts that the com­pany is ex­cel­lent in its health, safety, and en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment through­out the busi­ness – from the shop floor to the board­room.

Nak­i­lat CEO Ab­dul­lah al-Su­laiti said, “This award is a proud mo­ment for ev­ery­one at Nak­i­lat. We are very pleased to re­ceive this award, which was achieved on the very first oc­ca­sion of us par­tic­i­pat­ing in the BSC’s 5 Star HSSE au­dit. It bears tes­ti­mony to our de­ter­mi­na­tion to op­er­ate at the high­est in­ter­na­tional stan­dards and ef­fec­tively man­age oc­cu­pa­tional health, safety, en­vi­ron­ment, and em­ployee well-be­ing within the or­gan­i­sa­tion, as out­lined in our mis­sion state­ment to safely, re­li­ably and effi- ciently pro­vide ship­ping and mar­itime ser­vices.

“This is a re­sult of the ef­forts of all our em­ploy­ees for their ded­i­ca­tion to sup­port the com­pany’s In­ci­dent and In­jury Free (IIF) pro­gramme and is a clear in­di­ca­tion of what can be achieved when we work to­gether to en­sure ev­ery­one gets home safe, be it our em­ploy­ees, clients or stake­hold­ers.”

He added: “We ap­pre­ci­ate the Bri­tish Safety Coun­cil’s work in pro­mot­ing ex­cel­lence in work­place health, safety, and en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment. Nak­i­lat strives to­ward fo­cus­ing its en­ergy on driving con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment in the work­place, aligned with the val­ues es­poused in the Qatar Na­tional Vi­sion 2030, as well as our vi­sion to be global leader and provider of choice for en­ergy trans­porta­tion and mar­itime ser­vices.”

Bri­tish Safety Coun­cil chair­man Lawrence Water­man said, “On be­half of the board of trus­tees and staff of the Bri­tish Safety Coun­cil, I would like to con­grat­u­late Nak­i­lat on achiev­ing the very high­est stan­dards of health, safety, and en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment. Ex­cel­lence at this level is very hard won. We are proud to have sup­ported you in your achieve­ments.”

Bri­tish Safety Coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive Mike Robin­son added: “I would like to con­grat­u­late Nak­i­lat and its staff for their huge com­mit­ment to keep­ing their work­place safe and healthy and min­imis­ing risks to the en­vi­ron­ment from their or­gan­i­sa­tions’ day-to-day ac­tiv­i­ties.”

Nak­i­lat was one of 61 or­gan­i­sa­tions world­wide that re­ceived a Sword of Hon­our, awarded to com­pa­nies which have demon­strated ex­cel­lence in the man­age­ment of health and safety risks at work
