Dubai: Drydocks World, has reported huge success to its Heat Management Programme, which was implemented during the summer. The programme, specially designed to maintain good health and well being of the employees during the summer season has been quite effective in achieving its objectives, not only in reducing the numbers but also the intensity.
The results reveal Zero Heat Stroke, Zero Heat Exhaustion and 77 minor Heat Effect cases which did not require hospital referrals or admission during the designated time period from 1st June to 30th September 2012. As a result, the Company was able to record 10.5 million highly productive man hours unhindered by the summer heat, even as year 2012 had the hottest summer recorded in Dubai for the last 10 years. Externally auditable detailed records and statistics for the Heat Management Programme are maintained at the Drydocks World Medical Centre.
“We are delighted by the results, which has been made possible by the consistent efforts of our proactive Medical team and the co-operation of all our employees, business partners, contractors and clients. As we pursue operational excellence in all fields, we have been successful in creating awareness on health and safety that have a resounding impact on productivity, even as we are engaged in some of the world-leading projects in the maritime, offshore and energy sectors. Conscious of our corporate social responsibility, we offer and share our experience and research based knowledge of Heat Management Programme with the governmental bodies and private sector free-of-cost locally and internationally”, said Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World.
