Nakilat has achieved a ‘Five-star’ grading following its recent five star occupational health and safety audit conducted by the British Safety Council (BSC).
This is the second consecutive year that Nakilat has received the ‘Five-Star’ grading, which is the highest available rating that can be achieved in the audit.
The British Safety Council’s Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit assesses organisations’ Safety Management System against a worldwide benchmark of current best practices.
Nakilat underwent a detailed, quantified and objective evaluation of its occupational health and safety management system, and had its performance measured against a number of key best practice indicators.
The audit specification includes the five best practice indicators of leadership, stakeholder engagement, risk management, organisational health and safety culture and continual improvement.
In December 2018, Nakilat received the ‘Sword of Honour’ award by the British Safety Council, following its achievement of the maximum ‘Five Star’ grading.
Nakilat chief executive officer Abdullah al-Sulaiti said, “At Nakilat, safety is a core value and is the cornerstone of our operations. We are deeply committed to providing shipping and maritime services in a safe, reliable and efficient manner. We all are proud of the company’s safety initiatives which place great emphasis on occupational health and safety, employee well-being, and enhances our safety culture.
“Finally, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the British Safety Council for their guidance and support towards this achievement and to our employees for their efforts in achieving and maintaining such results".
