Drydocks World wins Sword of Honour
Drydocks World received the prestigious Sword of Honour for 2014 from the British Safety Council which was held in the famous Drapers’ Hall in London.
The Sword of Honour trophy represents the “best of the best” in several areas, which supports Production and overall Operational Excellence.
Drydocks World also announced it has achieved a five star rating from its Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit conducted by the British Safety Council.
Drydocks World underwent a detailed, quantified and objective evaluation of its occupational health and safety management system as the external audits of the British Safety Council have proven without a doubt the company’s operational excellence by scoring more than 96 per cent which makes it one of the distinguished few companies around the world.
The awards were received by HE Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydock World and Maritime World, with the presence of Linda Armstrong, President of the Board of the British Safety Council and Abdulrahman Ghanem Al Mutaiwee, UAE Ambassador to the United Kingdom and many VIPs, chairmen and top management executives of both British and global institutions.
The company maintains high level records in their long term policies and systems, since starting the "Zero Harm" campaign which contributed actively in creating the perfect record for the company relating to HSE (Health, Safety and Environment). The company delivered many of the first of its kind in the world projects that have been completed in 2014, as the pioneering platform DolWin beta to generate electricity from wind energy by achieving 3 million man hours LTI free, completing the Solan subsea oil storage facility by achieving 2.5 million man hours LTI free and also delivering 2 modules for the world’s largest Mooring System for “Shell” by achieving 5 million man hours without major incidents.
