The Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC) has marked its 2018 group-wide Safety Day, with a renewed pledge to keep its people, assets, communities and the environment free from harm. The Safety Day took place one year after the company launched its reinvigorated commitment to 100% HSE.
Introducing a unified set of 10 Life Saving Rules, which will apply across the ADNOC Group, His Excellency Dr Sultan Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and ADNOC Group CEO, said leading safety standards, aligned with international best practices, are the foundation on which ADNOC’s transformation, into a performance led and commercially-minded organisation, is being built.
“The achievements we have made over the past years have been underpinned by our ability to keep our operations safe and to give our partners, investors and customers the confidence that we safeguard their interests with our commitment to 100% HSE,” Dr Al Jaber said during meetings with staff from the ADNOC Group companies.
“Safety is vital to protect the value we create through our oil and gas resources. But as critical as it is to avoid economic impact it is equally imperative to keep our people safe from harm. People are our most important asset.”
Urging employees never to be complacent or to compromise on health, safety and environmental safeguards, Dr Al Jaber said: “Every day, our behaviors and actions must be based on clear, rigorous and practical rules that save lives. All of us must do what is in our power to protect our assets and maintain high process safety and asset integrity standards.”
Throughout the Safety Day, teams came together to discuss how best to implement the company’s unified rules, which are based on international best practice and designed to prevent injuries, protect people’s lives, safeguard assets and make ADNOC a safer place to work.
