Qatar Steel maintains plans for preventing, reducing, controlling, and otherwise mitigating emergencies. We also promote fire preparedness by improving training and introducing new, improvised fire-fighting equipment.
We maintain a tight focus on fire safety, and we constantly search for ways to strengthen our safety procedures.
To ensure the best emergency Preparedness, we:
Completed the consultancy study of Fire Water Network for entire Qatar steel and execution will start in 2017-18.
Increased familiarization visits and Emergency exercises with MIC Emergency Response Team.
Increased Fire Safety and Emergency preparedness and Building Marshal training.
In 2016, to reduce our overall risk of fire, we conducted several training exercises and awareness sessions for our employees and contractors. These include: induction training, do’s and don’ts during emergencies, and job related contractor safety training. Training priority was given to areas which are crucial to the safety of our employees and the protection of their livelihood, including prevention, detection, and quick response to potential fires. In 2016, we performed 12 drills covering emergencies such as: rescue, fire, electrical shock, confined space, gas leak, chemical leak, and evacuations, across multiple operations and scenarios.
