DOHA: RasGas Company Ltd (RasGas) recently celebrated an unprecedented record of 130 million manhours lost time injury (LTI) free at Ras Laffan Industrial City, said a press statement yesterday. 

This milestone builds on RasGas’ recent record of 100 million manhours LTI-free celebrated last December and is a testament to the company’s ongoing commitment to worker welfare through employment of stringent safety strategies, systems and processes.

The company hosted a well-earned three-day celebration, with entertainment, scrumptious dinners and raffle draws in honour of the 30,000 strong multi-national workforce who made this milestone achievement possible. Senior representatives from the Ministry of Labour, the Supreme Council of Health, the National Human Rights Committee, Qatar Petroleum and the RasGas management, 

the project management team as well as the main contractor, JGC management, joined 

in the festivities.

RasGas Chief Venture Officer, Nafez Bseiso, said that worker wellbeing is a vital part of responsible project execution and that RasGas sees no room for complacency when it comes to the well-being, and safety of its people. 

“This outstanding record surpasses all previous safety records both in Qatar and the region and can be considered world-class by all standards. Achieving this level of performance does not happen overnight. It is the result of our passion and belief in the capabilities of our project management teams, contractors and subcontractors to consistently implement rigorous safety programs and set very high standards,” said Bseiso.

RasGas aligns its safety performance with international practices including those standards established by the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers.
