Tadweer Hosts Workshop to Improve OSH Performance in Waste Management Sector

In a bid to ensure continued improvement in occupational safety and health (OSH) performance across the waste management sector, Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer) hosted a workshop at its headquarters in Abu Dhabi to enable companies operating in the field across the emirate to share industry best practices.

Held in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHAD), the session drew the participation of representatives from 115 waste management entities nominated by Tadweer since December 2017 in line with its role as the Waste Sector Regulatory Authority (SRA) for the Occupational Health and Safety Management System in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Commencing with an introduction to Tadweer’s efforts in the OSH domain, the workshop comprised a presentation outlining the process of managing waste sector entities from the approval stage to performance monitoring and improvement. The center’s HSE team also briefed participating companies on their role in creating an optimal work environment in the waste management sector in Abu Dhabi and explained the requirements specific to high-risk, medium-risk and low-risk entities.

Addressing the participants, Dr Salem Al Kaabi, Acting General Manager of Tadweer, said: “To promote a safe and healthy work environment in the waste management sector, it is imperative for top management of all entities to foster a sound OSH culture within their organizations. This, in turn, will improve the overall OSH indicators across the sector in Abu Dhabi.”

He added: “Tadweer has implemented an effective system to ensure the occupational health and safety of its employees and enhance service delivery. Today’s workshop enables us to share our technical know-how to help companies in the waste management sector boost their OSH profile, and we plan to organize similar events on a quarterly basis.”

For his part, Eng. Hani Hossni, EHS Director at Tadweer, said: “Tadweer is keen to develop the capacities of employees working across entities operating in the waste management sector through routinely hosting training workshops on occupational safety and health."The trainees applauded Tadweer’s efforts in implementing its OSH action plan and ensuring that employees at various stakeholder organizations in the emirate are brought up to speed on its importance and the positive impact it can have on the overall sector. 

At the culmination of the workshop, specialists from Tadweer answered queries from the participants on a range of OSH issues.
