One of the keys to Mittal’s success is embedded in the system of work, which is captured in our Operations Manual. This manual clearly sets all roles and responsibilities, methodologies and processes, and sequence of work starting from project inception up to the final stage of handing over an operating facility. Our system is characterized with structure and clarity to guide our teams’ actions, and also flexibility to promote innovation among them.
The key processes that Mittal undertakes to reach successful delivery are shown in the Figure below.
Mittal’s departments work together as a team to ensure successful completion of all stages and processes leading to the final one of handing over as it is elaborated in the illustration below.
Health, Safety & Environment Policy
Our Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) Plan is set according to the United Arab Emirates’ laws and regulations, codes of practice, and relevant international standards. These standards that Mittal complies to include OHSAS 18001 regarding occupational health, and ISO 14001 regarding environmental management. The HSE plan is set to capture the principles that are of paramount importance to us in Mittal.
In this context, our main goal is to create a safe and healthy working environment that is free of accidents for our on-site and off-site teams, parties we work with like subcontractors, and the public. To achieve this, we work closely with our clients, subcontractors, and suppliers to set, improve, and maintain HSE policies across activities in all projects. These HSE policies are integrated with quality policies that comply with ISO 9001to reach our greater goal of achieving client satisfaction.
HSE Planning Mechanism
In Mittal, we recognize that our HSE plan needs to be flexible and robust as it should be adapted to the differing aspects and conditions of each project. This is done through a guiding framework for developing a HSE plan that highlights the common and routine risks among projects, while also accounting for the varying parameters. This framework is integrated with risk management to identify by the beginning of each project all possible HSE issues and risks along with their likelihood of occurring, and possible consequences of them happening. Accordingly, a HSE plan is put in place to eliminate or reduce these sources of risk in relation to occupational health, safety, and the environment. This plan can fulfill its purpose by guiding employees’ actions within their respective occupations. We believe that reaching our goal of a safe working environment is only doable with proactive management behavior that we instil in our teams along with effective communication. We also reinforce these safety values in our team at all levels by periodically inducting them, and keeping them updated with the latest policies and rules. To maintain our HSE plan, we conduct periodic audits and management reviews to analyze all HSE issues that were recorded and monitored across projects. This is essential to control how activities are conducted, and prevent the reoccurrence of previously reported issues. This plan is inclusive of working equipment and hazardous material that need to be carefully handled and monitored to minimize impacts on people and the environment.
