Msheireb achieves LTI milestone
Doha, October 23, 2011
Qatar-based Msheireb Properties said it had reached a significant safety milestone by registering 10 million hours worked on its flagship Msheireb Downtown site without a single lost time incident or injury on phase 1A.
A subsidiary of Qatar Foundation, Msheireb was established as a commercial venture to support the foundation’s aims, as well as the goals of Qatar’s 2030 Vision.
This accomplishment is a result of the company's adherence to strict local and international Health and Safety Regulations and adoption of strict inspection, reporting, third party audit backed up by rigorous training programmes, said a company statement.
Lost Time Incident/Injury (LTI) is an important measure of on-site safety, indicating the total man hours worked on the project without any downtime that is the result of an accident or injury.
The accomplishment goes hand in hand with an initiative launched by Msheireb to reward workers and contractors for excellence in on-site safety.
Under the Msheireb Properties Safety Awards Program, workers receive a collective achievement award on passing pre-set milestones and individual achievement awards to recognize a single worker’s strict adherence to safety instructions.
Prizes include pre-paid phone cards, shopping vouchers, cinema tickets and household goods.
The Contractors Award, audited by the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Department is presented to one contractor each quarter in the form of a specially commissioned Msheireb Properties Safety Trophy and certificate.
Mohammad Al Marri, project director of Msheireb said, “This milestone is a reflection of the strict local and international standards that we have applied throughout the project and emphasises our commitment to the highest standards of safety management and the welfare of all our workers, contractors and associates on the project.'
“This achievement is also a reinforcement of the care and attention taken by Msheireb Properties on all works and planning, with a health and safety policy that is amongst the most strict in the world,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
