Creating a Culture of Safety
We are committed to creating a culture of safety by listening to the people and their safety concerns. We have also implemented the DuPont™ STOP® Safety Program that helps create a safety culture at Maha. The safety program, offers insight to safety concerns and safety excellence through the utilization of formal observations and informal safety conversations. The formal safety observations uses safety cards that focus on the work environment, the work activities, the tools used, the protective equipment used, and the individual person’s actions and interactions with the work environment. The Safety Observation Cards help us understand and improve the safety environment at the workplace, it also enforces a safety mindset in the participants. Completing Safety Observations Cards encourages proactive identification and corrections of potential safety risks and hazards as well as enforcing safe thinking at the workplace. Every month, the Maha collects Safety Observation Cards from the participants. The HSE team then reviews each safety concern and strives to eliminate and address potential identified issues. The Safety Program aims to change the thinking and behavior of people towards a safety-oriented mindset. The Program gives people the information, real-world practice, and skills to work more safely. This program has been studied, tested, and proven to help reduce accidents and injuries.
At Maha, we believe safety is a mindset and a culture rather than procedure or protocol.
In line with the DuPont™ STOP® Safety Program, we believe that all of our employees have a shared responsibility in maintaining a respectful and safe work environment. This means looking out for one another as well as avoid placing one’s self or others at risk. Any employee, contractor or visitor at Maha has the responsibility and authority to refuse and stop work at any time on the basis it is deemed unsafe to the individual, property, and/or the environment.
