Asyad Group joins corporations and enterprises around the world in celebrating the annual World Day for Safety and Health at Work on 28 April this year focusing on enhancing social dialogue towards a positive culture of safety and health.
The day chosen by the International Labor Organization (ILO) promotes the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases, focusing this year on building a positive safety culture in workplaces which Asyad Group promotes in all its business units and joint ventures. This culture has been key in delivering an outstanding performance over the last two years, ensuring wellbeing of Asyad employees, and dramatically reducing lost time injuries (LTIs) and minor incidents.
Asyad’s QHSSE figures demonstrate the Group’s success in creating a safe and efficient operational environment throughout 2021 without a single LTI across its business units. Group reports prove that the culture promoted by Asyad is not only inclusive, but also built on encouraging all employees to raise their concerns related to potential risks and hazards to safety.
According to the Executive Summary, Asyad Group managed to achieve a 0.31 Lost time injury frequency rate (LTIFR) outperforming its 2021 target of 0.45. Other positive indicators between February 2021 and February 2022 include zero occupational injuries across Asyad units, over 22.9 million manhours without incident in Asyad business units, and 4.6 million safe manhours in Asyad joint ventures.
Asyad Group continues its quest to maintain strict health and safety standards and implements several proactive safety initiatives, from webinars to various media two-way communication tool, to keep improving the healthy environment it created and identify new and sustainable QHSSE approaches.
This year’s chosen theme of the World Day for Safety and Health at Work is “Let’s Act together to build a positive safety and health culture”; and Asyad truly believes that cooperation is key in creating safe and healthy workplaces. The Group will continue to promote and instill such culture in its own units and with its partners in line with the Sultanate of Oman Logistics Strategy (SOLS 2040) and Oman Vison 2040.
