Waste management and HR firm Dulsco held its 11th annual QHSE Week for its business units, with the spotlight this year on workplace safety and risk prevention.

Over 6,000 employees across its company locations in UAE and Qatar were targeted through the week-long event.

The company's QHSE (Quality, Health, Safety and Environment) programme ensures the employees have a complete understanding of workplace safety procedures.

Abdul Aziz Mohammad Khan Abdulla, chairman, Dulsco, said, "Workplace safety and risk prevention have always been an integral part of Dulsco's best practices due to the nature of our business. We are a committed employer with a greater responsibility towards the safety of our employees and the local communities we live and work with."

"The week-long QHSE campaign was yet another example where companies and employees worked together in order to create a safe environment at the workplace. We believe that workplace safety is a collective responsibility of all employees and not just a few," added Johnson Alexander, director, human resources and QHSE, Dulsco.

Through interactive sessions, employees were given thorough training in all aspects of workplace safety - such as basic health and safety awareness, anti narcotics awareness, road safety, safety while segregating waste, identification of possible hazards, defensive safe driving practices for drivers, health awareness, emergency evacuation for workers, fire drills, site cleaning and housekeeping practices.

The sessions were accompanied by quiz competitions, educational movies, and blood donation drives which were carried out in the UAE and Qatar.

Towards the end of the QHSE Week, employees were also recognised for their contribution and constructive suggestions.

The QHSE Week concluded with Bureau Veritas, the international certifying organisation, presenting the Integrated Management System certificates on quality, environment, and occupational health &safety to the various business units in Dulsco.
