Ras Laffan Power Company has won the “prestigious” RoSPA Electricity Sector Award at a ceremony hosted by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in Glasgow, the United Kingdom, recently.
The award was received by the company’s managing director Mubarak al-Nasr in the UK.
Through the RoSPA Awards scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. The awards are now in its 61st year.
On the occasion, al-Nasr said, “We have been participating and receiving RoSPA Gold Award every year since 2011. However, receiving the prestigious Electricity Sector Winner Award among all the esteemed participants will help us in further reinforcing our commitment to improving health and safety at workplace.
“We already have ‘energetic’ safety culture at RLPC through active participation of employees and contractors. For the last few years, we have especially been proactive in improving employees’ competency and contractor awareness on safe working practices.”
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat. This is a special year in the history of RoSPA, and we congratulate all of our winners in this, our centenary year”.
Ras Laffan Power Company is the first Independent Power and Water producing company in Qatar, commercially operating since 2003.
RLPC has completed more than 11 years of operations without any loss time injury for employees and contractors.
