Shell officials recently presented Qatargas with the company's Shell Zero Award in recognition of 10 million man-hours without a leak or any other serious safety-related incident.
Qatar Shell Companies Managing Director and Chairman Michiel Kool presented the award.
“At Shell, what we call Goal Zero is a deep belief that we can run our operations with no harm to people and no leaks,” Kool said. “We are proud to be working with a partner like Qatargas that shares the same belief, making sure that Qatargas staff and contractors go back to their homes safe and sound every day. Shell’s Goal Zero Award to Qatargas is a recognition for working with this mindset in day to day operations as demonstrated by an outstanding safety performance with Qatargas registering 10 million working hours without significant leaks or incidents. I would like to congratulate all Qatargas management and staff, as well as its partners and contractors, on achieving this milestone.”
Qatargas officials described the achievement as the result of an intentional effort to support workplace safety.
“We in Qatargas believe that safety is not a mere collection of policies and procedures,” Randy Stadler, Qatargas' chief safety, environment and quality officer, said. “Safety is a core value that shapes our behaviors and actions -- not only at work, but in everything we do each and every day. We appreciate the recognition of our 10 million man-hour safety milestone, and we look forward to continued collaboration in making 2016 our safest year yet.”
