For the second consecutive year, Qatargas’ Shipping Department has won two prestigious awards from the British Safety Council for its commitment to achieving excellent standards of health, safety and environmental management.
At a special ceremony held in London on Friday, Qatargas was presented with the Sword of Honour, for excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work, and the Globe of Honour, for excellence in environmental management. The company was one of only seven organisations worldwide, who were successful in winning both the Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour in 2015. This builds on its achievement in 2014, when the company became the first Qatari organisation involved in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) shipping operations to win these prestigious awards. In 2015, as many as 61 organisations worldwide won a Sword of Honour and eight achieved a Globe of Honour.
Khalid bin Khalifa al-Thani, Qatargas CEO, received the awards from Lynda Armstrong, Chair of Trustees for the British Safety Council.
On the occasion, Khalid bin Khalifa al-Thani, said: “We are deeply honoured to receive this prestigious recognition for the second consecutive year. It serves as an evidence of our continued efforts to promote and maintain world class standards and integrate best practices into our business performance. Through the hard work and dedication of the Qatargas Shipping Department, this is yet another milestone in our commitment to being the world’s premier LNG Company. Today, we are proud to be one of only seven organisations worldwide and the only Qatari organisation to have achieved both of these highly significant global recognitions in 2015. We are committed to maintaining and enhancing our performance to ensure we continue to meet the highest global standards through the years to come and strongly encourage others to join us on this journey towards health, safety and environmental excellence.”
