As part of its effort to ensure safety at its plant and environment, RasGas held a safety- focused interactive workshop recently. The workshop was attended by the company’s management team along with Professor Patrick Hudson, a leading world expert in safety management in the oil and gas industry. The workshop, which was the fifth annual edition, was part of the company’s safety policies named RasGas’ Elements for Excellence (RGE).
Speaking at the event, RasGas Managing Director Hamad Rashid al Mohannadi highlighted the objectives of the workshop. “It is important for our workforce to understand not only the personal safety risks involved in our business, but also the process safety risks. Although the potentials for process safety risks at major facilities such as RasGas are relatively low, their impact can be far reaching. Therefore, it is important that relevant lessons learned from our industry are shared and understood by our organisation,” he said.
Professor Patrick Hudson, a lecturer at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, explained how RasGas can reinforce its commitment to an acccident-free workplace. He gave examples of major process disasters in the oil and gas industry to identify the relationship between safety culture, leadership and safe operations. The interactive session focused on the latest research and expertise from the oil and gas industry to help facilitate action aimed at enhancing safety knowledge and achieving RasGas’ goal of zero accidents in the workplace.
