In recognition of its continued excellent safety performance, Qatargas was recently awarded the Shell ‘Goal Zero’ Award. The award aims to promote and build a strong safety culture in the industry by recognising and celebrating great safety performance. Qatargas received the award in recognition of working ten million man-hours without serious leaks or incidents.
Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Qatargas Chief Executive Officer received the award from Wael Sawan, Managing Director and Chairman of Qatar Shell Companies at a brief ceremony held at the Qatargas Doha Head Office.
Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, said, “Our Incident and Injury Free culture is woven into everything we do. Our Qatargas Management System (QGMS) ensures our operations and work environment are safe for our employees and contractors. We accept no compromises in this area. We appreciate the Shell Goal Zero award in recognition of working 10 million man-hours without a serious incident or release. The dedication and expertise of our people combined with the support of our shareholder partners has made this achievement possible.”
Randy Lee Stadler, Qatargas Chief Safety, Environment and Quality Officer, added, “At Qatargas, safety is a core business value that governs everything we do- from our planning and facility construction, to our Shutdowns and maintenance activities, as well as to the way we operate the business every day. By instilling the importance of working safely in our employees and contractors from the first day that they start working, we strive to create a working environment in which safe behaviors are consistently reinforced and rewarded. We thank Shell for recognizing our efforts and achievements.”
Wael Sawan, Managing Director and Chairman of Qatar Shell Companies, said, “At Shell, Goal Zero means relentlessly pursuing no harm to people and no leaks in how we run our business. We are proud to be working with a partner like Qatargas that shares this philosophy. Shell’s Goal Zero Award is recognition for an outstanding safety performance in achieving 10 million man-hours without serious leaks or incidents. I would like to congratulate all Qatargas management and staff as well as its partners and contractors on this very significant milestone. We look forward to our continued partnership with Qatargas that maintains safety as a deeply held value.”
For Qatargas, safety is a core value which sits at the top of priorities in all the Company’s activities. Qatargas implements a tailor-made safety program called ‘Incident and Injury Free’ across all its operations. This program focuses on taking all necessary precautions to prevent accidents and injuries before they occur and to help ensure that everyone goes home safely every day. Last year, Qatargas launched the ’10 Life Saving Rules’ related to safety that are mandatory for every person, whether employee or contractor working at Qatargas.
Qatargas has consistently demonstrated outstanding safety performance across its operations and projects. Earlier this month as a testament to its continuing pursuit of safe working practices, the Company achieved 12 consecutive years without a Lost Time Incident (LTI) across its offshore operations. Also, earlier this year, the Qatargas Jetty Boil-off Gas Recovery Project (JBOG) achieved 20 million man-hours without a Lost Time Incident.
