Vodafone Qatar's quarterly Health & Safety (H&S) Forum brought together over a video conference, staff and key telecom vendors to present their H&S results for the second quarter of the year.
Vodafone Qatar’s chief human resources officer, Khames Mohamed al-Naimi, and chief technology officer, Ramy Boctor were present.
Among the achievements reported for the period was zero Lost Time Injuries (LTIs), a major milestone in safety performance.
Presenting their overall observations, forum attendees reiterated their commitment to Vodafone’s leading health and safety standards, and to continuing their rigorous efforts to finish the year with zero LTIs.
Vodafone Qatar initiated its participatory H&S Forum to work more closely with business partners in its wide network, especially those performing high-risk activities, to strengthen their awareness of local and international laws and regulations where necessary, and ensure the highest levels of health and safety standards are enforced.
Al-Naimi said: "One of Vodafone Qatar’s core values is creating a safe work environment for all our employees, contractors, subcontractors, and business partners. This is a culture that positively influences our productivity and results in a better quality of service and higher customer satisfaction.
"To achieve this goal, we take health and safety personally and look out for each other – making it a collective responsibility.
"The outstanding safety record and continuous efforts achieved this quarter reflects that, and also aligns with Qatar’s efforts to enhance the country’s health and safety standards.”
Underpinning the Vodafone Qatar Health, Safety and Wellbeing Policy is a commitment to a robust and durable health, safety and wellbeing culture.
The Vodafone Absolute Rules on safety focus on risks that present the greatest potential for harm for anyone working for or on behalf of Vodafone, such as working at height or with electricity, and adopts a zero-tolerance approach to unsafe behaviours.
