At ADNOC, the lives of our employees and contractors are paramount to our optimal business performance. We have developed robust policies to address both personal and process safety challenges. We have increased accountability in our workplace while recognizing safe and good behavior across our operations.
We have embedded a safety culture into our everyday lives by launching ten Life-Saving Rules that keep our employees and contractors safe. These principles are based on international best practices and help prevent injuries, protect the lives of our employees, and safeguard damage to our assets.
10 Life-Saving Rules
We are all safety leaders. Our journey to 100% HSE is a collective effort, where we are shaping a culture of trust and commitment to stay accountable to each other’s safety.
Since 2018, we hold an annual group-wide Safety Day to exemplify the importance of being a safety leader. During the Safety Day, our employees and contractors discuss behaviors that are required in safety leadership when working across our onshore and offshore operations.
The 2019 theme for ADNOC Safety Day was ‘I am a Safety Leader’. The tenets encompass:
Every summer, our attention is drawn to our site employees who work for prolonged periods in the extreme heat and humidity due to the nature of their jobs. Through our annual ‘Beat the Heat’ campaign, we are taking measures to ensure they enjoy optimal health and wellbeing at all times.
Through several awareness programs, we train our employees on how to manage the summer heat by drinking water frequently and avoiding dehydration. We have adopted a heat stress prevention management plan so that we can achieve zero heat-related occupational illness across our operations.
Our dedicated HSE leaders are focused on monitoring our site employees for early signs of heat stress and take remedial measures where necessary.
At ADNOC, our values are underpinned by an unwavering focus on 100% HSE, in line with our 2030 smart growth strategy: our commitment to keeping employees, communities, environment, and assets safe from harm. Every day, we work together to ensure that everyone goes home safely.
In 2017, the ADNOC leadership signed a 100% HSE Pledge that directs the way we think, act, and conduct business. The ADNOC Group HSE function within our operations ensures that we follow the highest HSE governance encouraging appropriate personal and process safety measures. We have also devised strategic plans for risk management and established emergency response procedures to embed a 100% HSE culture throughout our operations.
Together, we are transforming ADNOC into an industry benchmark in HSE performance, firmly founded on a strong safety culture that inspires others.
We are committed to building a workplace culture of zero injuries, illnesses, and incidents. We identify potential health risks across our operating sites beforehand so that our employees can enjoy a healthy work environment. By striving to create a working environment that is free from occupational illness and injury, we can ensure that our employees and contractors go home safe and healthy.
In the industry that we work in, the workforce faces potential health risks and occupational health hazards. As an advocate for the health and wellbeing of our employees and contractors, we host several training sessions and health education programs to ensure health awareness and minimize HSE risk.
The ADNOC Occupational Health Framework equips us to continuously monitor the working conditions of our employees through the following elements:
The 100% HSE ‘I Am The Difference’ campaign was launched in 2018 and captured the importance of creating a deep and meaningful health and safety culture. With participation by ADNOC Leadership, our employees and contractors, the campaign reflected the importance of keeping our people, communities, the environment, and assets safe from harm.
Together, we are committed to:
