Demonstrating our Commitment
Abu Dhabi Ports is fully compliant with all pertinent regulations from relevant Abu Dhabi Authorities – as well as with national and international HSE rules and regulations.
Our HSE Management System ensures the highest standard of regulatory implementation, compliance and management of our health, safety and environment related processes.
Abu Dhabi Ports is certified by Abu Dhabi Occupational Safety and Health Centre (OSHAD) and the Department of Transport Abu Dhabi (DoT). It is also fully ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 compliant – the most sought-after certifications in the Environment and Occupational Health and Safety – demonstrating our total commitment to ensuring the health and safety of our employees and port users, as well as being fully environmentally responsible.
Our Integrated Health Safety Environment Management System (IHSEMS) provides the overall strategic framework for maintaining and improving workplace health and safety.
Abu Dhabi Ports also launched NEESHAN, an HSE & Business Continuity Award Programme to appreciate and celebrate those who championed health and safety at work; to recognise the contributions of departments, individuals and customers.
We believe safe working environments, efficient safe operations and delighted customers are possible only by collaborating with our clients and stakeholders.
The effective implementation of IHSEMS has resulted in reduction of incidents, as well as a significant decrease in disposal of general waste to landfill – concurrently with more efficient and timely reporting.
As part of our commitment to maintaining a safe work environment, Abu Dhabi Ports has introduced the “Day One Induction” programme targeting everyone who visits and works at any of our port areas.
The programme highlights potential hazards and promotes awareness of health and safety in the port environment. To ensure their safety, all participants have to complete a short assessment before gaining access to the premises.
Abu Dhabi Ports also conducts annual HSE campaigns, awareness sessions and trainings – either internally or as joint campaigns with other Government entities – with the objective of enhancing awareness and culture among employees, port users and the community.
Our aim is to promote HSE culture across all business units/ divisions of Abu Dhabi Ports, thereby, enhancing health and safety for all and taking care of the environment we operate in and are part of.
