Environment,Health  & Safety Statement

Arabian Power Company (APC) is committed to achieving the highest standards of health and safety not only in respect of its own employees; but also in relation to contractors working on the Umm Al Nar site, visitors and members of the community who may be affected by the plant’s activities.

We are aware of our legal obligations and the requirements and expectations of our stakeholders, and we are fully committed to meeting these obligations. The successful management of health, safety and staff welfare is a key management objective and we fully recognise the contribution that this makes towards our overall business performance. In addition, we fully recognise that accidents and ill health commonly result form failings in management systems and control, and these we strive to continuously improve.

We will operate and maintain the Umm Al Nar Power and Water facility so that proper provision is made for health, safety and welfare of our employees at work, and of others who may be affected by our activities, with the commitment to achieve an accident-free site. We will provide safe and healthy working conditions, equipment and systems of work. We fully support the concept of consultation with our staff on health and safety matters and have established a Health, Safety and Welfare committee to provide a forum for such consultation. Our policy is distributed to all staff and will is reviewed on an annual basis.
