G4S Qatar celebrated HSE Activities such as “Paperless Day,” “Medical Check-up Day” and “Plantation Day” from 16th August 2016 to 18th August 2016, under the initiative of CEO, Dr. Saif Al Hajri in coordination with Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) department and special participation of Mr. Nathan Seal, Regional Health & Safety Director (G4S - Asia Pacific, Middle East & India) in bringing awareness to G4S employees and the society at large.
As the paper industry is one of the biggest contributors to climate change, and in support to the globally, G4S Qatar once again offered a day off from printing with the aim to reduce its environmental carbon footprint even for just one day. The purpose of this was to encourage the employees to review and reduce their daily paper usage and printing activities, and to make them realize that they can contribute in saving the earth in their own little way. G4S management desires to reduce waste and encourage a more resource savvy approach in doing business. On 18th August 2016, we celebrated Paperless Day, initiated by HSE team and participated by indirect staff from headquarter.
Medical Check-Up Day
The annual physical check is a part of our employee health programs, for both direct and indirect staff. On 18th of August 2016, HSE department conducted an Annual Health Check-up day for Events Division’s direct employees at Muaither Clinic. The regional Health & Safety Director also witnessed the said activity and has given his appreciation to the HSE team for their effort and initiative to promote healthy lifestyle among our employees.
The medical check includes blood pressure test, eye test, glucose check, BMI calculation and general physical examination by Al Anab Clinic doctor and nurses. Everyone was given a report and medical advice on how to maintain healthy body, mind and soul.
Planting a tree is a great way to celebrate Environmental Day. When people plant trees they are doing more than just beautifying an area. Trees are beneficial to the environment in numerous ways. They help produce oxygen and filter out pollutants to clean the air we breathe. In addition, trees also help preserve water levels in the soil. On the 16th August 2016, Mr. Nathan Seal took part in planting a tree at G4S accommodation in Al Khor together with HSE Manager, MSS Al Khor Branch Manager and G4S employees.
The aforementioned activities was intended to move from “raising awareness” to action and help make a positive change in the people’s attitude and behavior towards environment through practical application. G4S Qatar, being a responsible organization is committed to create awareness among its employees to work safely, make a healthy workforce and build an eco-friendly working environment by utilizing its best capacity in making G4S greener, safer and healthier.
