Our systems are internationally accredited by ISO 45001:2018 and approved by both Dubai and Abu Dhabi Municipalities (OSHAD).
An approach of 'Visible Felt Leadership' is key to our success in managing occupational health and safety in the challenging environment of construction projects. Our leadership team ensures that our managers know the standards expected, have the tools to meet them as well as the authority to do so. Our leadership teams conduct site inspections and safety tours on a frequent but irregular basis ensuring that everyone sees and feels their leadership presence and the attention placed on Health and Safety.
To maintain the high levels expected and drive up consistency across our business we have a set of minimum mandatory standards that address key areas of risk. These documents, our ’K-Standards’, define what is required and provide clear guidance on how to achieve these standards in real life situations on complex construction projects. These standards are also integrated into our supply chain and our training & development programmes to ensure consistency and compliance across all trades on every project. Regular audits are conducted to measure the performance of our projects against these standards, and a 5 star K Rating is awarded to projects that exceed them.
To effectively manage health and safety we encourage our site teams to actively report and act upon any unsafe acts and conditions. Clearly identifying these trends allows management intervention before they become an incident. Leading and lagging indicators are reported every month which provide us with the data that allows proactive behaviour and effective implementation of preventative measures. We also use this data to improve our ‘K Standards’, procurement policies and other areas of the business.
Training & development are essential to our success and continual improvement and is part of every employees working life at Khansaheb. Activity specific training is delivered to improve competency and consistency across quality, production and Health and safety.
Health and safety continues to be at the core of our training strategy and courses that we deliver, with every course provided being measured and assessed for success.
