Qatargas has recently been awarded the Shell ‘Goal Zero’ Award, in recognition of working 10 million man-hours without serious leaks or incidents. The award aims to promote and build a strong safety culture in the industry by recognising and celebrating great safety performance.
Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Qatargas Chief Executive Officer 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 behaviours are consistently reinforced and rewarded. We thank Shell for recognising our efforts and achievements.”
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 recently achieved 12 consecutive years without a Lost Time Incident (LTI) across its offshore operations, while its Jetty Boil-off Gas Recovery Project (JBOG) achieved 20 million man-hours without a LTI earlier this year.
