Al Naboodah targets zero injuries by 2020

Al Naboodah Group Enterprises (ANGE) has appointed Rob Munn to the position of general manager of safety, health, environment, and quality.

In his new role, Munn will be responsible for overseeing ANGE’s health, safety, and environmental activities, and ensuring the wellbeing of the group’s 16,000 employees.

The move forms part of the UAE-headquartered conglomerate’s strategy to reduce all reportable injuries to zero by 2020.

Commenting on the appointment, Paul O’Flaherty, chief executive officer of ANGE, said: “Adhering to the highest safety standards is not a choice; it’s baked into the way we do business at ANGE.

“What we’ve seen over the years is that this commitment to safety not only protects the welfare of our employees, [but also] positively contributes to the bottom line by reducing damage to the environment, equipment, and machinery.

“At ANGE, we are dedicated to developing and upholding a culture of safety across our company, and we are proud to appoint [Munn] to this new position to ensure that all our staff are safe,” O’Flaherty added.

In 2016, ANGE achieved a record-low number of injuries, and zero fatalities. It reduced its lost-time injury frequency rate (LTIFR) from 0.15 to 0.14.

ANGE stated that the operation of its health and safety management system is compliant with the provisions of international occupational health and safety management system specifications. The firm added that all incidents are recorded online, and data is regularly reported.

“We are working hard to fulfil new government requirements to employ Emirati health and safety officers,” continued O’Flaherty. “This forms an integral part of our overall Emiratisation strategy.”

In 2015, ANGE introduced health and safety training to all members of its construction business. Last year, the group’s contracting arm, Al Naboodah Construction Group, was accredited by the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) as a training centre that is equipped to deliver high-quality, effective health and safety training to workers and operational staff.

This training programme will continue to operate throughout the company during 2017.

Details of ANGE’s recent safety, health, and environmental performance can be found in the group's 2016 Sustainability Report.
