In recognition of its commitment to safety management and environmental management excellence, for the fifth consecutive year, Qatargas’ Commercial and Shipping Group was awarded the prestigious Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour by the British Safety Council.

In the presence of Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, Qatargas Chief Executive Officer, Abdurrahman Al Mulla, Qatargas Shipping Manager, received the awards at a ceremony held recently in London, the United Kingdom. Qatargas is one of ten organisations worldwide that won the ‘double’ by being awarded both the Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour.

Commenting on these accolades, Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, Qatargas CEO, said, “Qatargas is very proud to receive the Sword of Honour and the Globe of Honour awards for the fifth consecutive year. These prestigious awards are testament to the world-class standards we maintain at Qatargas, and most importantly, they recognise our commitment to operating safely, efficiently and reliably. On behalf of Qatargas, I would like to acknowledge the British Safety Council for promoting excellence in workplace health, safety and environmental management, and for bestowing this honour on Qatargas.”

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said: “The Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour awards recognise and reward the organisations that have reached the pinnacle of health and safety, or environmental management.  This is such a significant achievement because it also requires an organisation to demonstrate how they intend to continually improve in specific aspects of health, safety and environmental management.”

Lawrence Waterman, Chairman of the British Safety Council, said: “The Sword and Globe award winners have set an example of excellence in the management of health, safety and environmental risk worldwide, further strengthening the case for good health and safety at work. We should remember, however, that the management of health and safety is not only about accident prevention. For a company to be truly successful and for its employees to be engaged, committed and happy, it must create conditions where people are able to thrive at work. This is the true meaning of wellbeing and it’s our industry’s goal for the future.”
