Mubadala

In adherence to international best practices, Mubadala is committed to ensuring that effective safety systems are in place to identify, manage and mitigate risks and minimize workplace injuries and incidents.

One effective way of creating a safety culture is through employee engagement in safety enhancement efforts. At Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA), employees are encouraged to come up with creative ideas to improve safety measures. This helps raise awareness and embed a strong sense of responsibility among the employees for their own safety and that of their colleagues.

Recognizing that the people closest to a process are in an ideal position to identify areas for improvement, EGA has run a suggestion scheme since 1981. The senior management duly recognize employees like Dilieepan ― featured in the video ― for their contribution of valuable ideas.

As one of the largest aluminium companies in the world and the UAE’s biggest industrial company outside oil and gas, EGA accords paramount attention to safety.

EGA’s Al Taweelah alumina refinery recently went into operation with world-class safety performance during the construction of the massive US $3.3 billion project. The total recordable incident frequency rate was 0.89 per million hours worked, significantly better than heavy industrial construction benchmarks.

Mubadala Petroleum’s exploration and production activities have over the past several years delivered excellent Health, Safety, Security & Environment (HSSE) performance. In benchmarking against other oil and gas companies, Mubadala Petroleum’s performance has been consistently higher than the industry average, positioning it for five consecutive years in the top quartile.

Key highlights of that impressive performance include 8.6 million man-hours without a lost time injury (May 2017 – April 2019) and zero oil spills above 1 barrel. Mubadala Petroleum’s HSSE performance in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia has been recognized through eight independent safety awards over the past four years. Underpinning this performance are systems, processes and procedures, implemented through a strong safety culture and accredited to international environmental, quality and safety standards, ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001.

Building and embedding a strong safety culture is at the heart of Mubadala Petroleum’s operations. Through their HSSE efforts, they are effectively managing the risks inherent in the industry and, ultimately, reducing the impact on personnel, their families and lives. In the second video, Nuttawut “Tom” Krittaphol, HSSE Manager passionately shares how he prioritizes safety first to make great operational teams.

In the UAE, our aerospace business Strata Manufacturing has achieved more than 5+ million man-hours without any lost time injury and aims to continue its journey in having an “incident free facility”. Since its inception a decade ago, Strata has focused on integrating safety measures in different aspects ranging from the manufacturing of aircraft parts to employee’s behavior within the workplace.

Employee safety in the workplace training includes risk assessments, hazard identification and other safety essentials that are mandatory for all employees working in their facility.

These and many more impressive safety records held by Mubadala companies are just one of the factors that position Mubadala as a responsible investor committed to the safety of its employees, facilities, and the communities in the vicinity of its operations.
