Nakilat was recently awarded the ‘Sword of Honour’ by the British Safety Council. This is the fourth consecutive year that Nakilat has been recognized with this prestigious award, presented to companies which have demonstrated excellence in the management of health, safety and environmental risks at work.
Nakilat Chief Executive Officer Eng. Abdullah Al-Sulaiti said, “The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees and subcontractors is paramount to our business. Throughout the pandemic, we have taken extensive health and safety measures and continued the implementation of our ‘Injury and Incident Free’ campaign to embed a culture of zero harm. We continued to uphold exemplary commitment to operating to the highest international standards and effectively managed occupational health, safety, environment, and well-being within the organization.”
Al Sulaiti added: “The publishing of Nakilat’s first Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) report in 2021 further highlights our commitment towards sustainable operations. The report details how the company is managing health and safety, climate change, human capital management and governance practices. It shows the various ways in which we are enabling sustainable growth across our operations to positively impact our people, the community and environment, while creating value for our stakeholders and shareholders.”
In order to compete for the Sword of Honour, Nakilat first had to achieve the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s health, safety and environmental management audit scheme in the period August 2020 – November 2021. Nakilat had also remotely demonstrated to an independent panel of experts that it was strongly committed to upholding excellence in health, safety and environmental management throughout the business – from the shop floor to the boardroom.
