Health, safety and environment a competitive business in Qatar

With the number of conferences, summits and forums surrounding health, safety and environment (HSE) taking place in the region these days, one would be inclined to think it is a relatively new phenomenon.

However, unbeknownst to some, HSE is a key element with many companies in Qatar.

In fact, companies like Enertech Qatar have been in the business of offering HSE training for over 10 years, according to bq magazine.

Others are also in the fray and it is safe to say, that HSE training is now a competitive business.

Little wonder, as all eyes are on Qatar with the country due to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup and numerous projects associated with the big event underway, HSE has a key role to play to ensure nothing goes awry when it comes to ongoing, underway or in the offing.

While bigger firms, such as the energy majors, offer HSE training in-house, many continue to outsource to companies who specialise in the field.

In fact, even firms that offer in-house training also approach third parties to ensure the HSE specialisation is complete.

According to Abin Sulaiman, finance and administration manager at Enertech Qatar:

"Enertech has been responding to the needs of several sectors such as oil and gas, construction, hospitality, mega projects, education, transportation, among others, for 10 years now."

"HSE training entails health, safety and environmental training and consultancy, although there may be changes in requirements, depending on the type of industry."

Competition requires continuous upgrades of an HSE training centre’s facilities.

Enertech Qatar ploughs resources into its training facilities for its instructors’ further improvement through additional qualifications.

Being highly involved in HSE awareness campaigns, the firm has created ways for Enertech to increase the HSE culture in existing clients’ companies and further.

"One way of succeeding in this is providing free materials containing HSE content on a regular basis for all interested parties," Sulaiman says.

Lineesh Nadukkudi, training manager at Enertech, adds:

"Enertech Qatar aims to provide HSE training not only to firms who have requirements in terms of certification but also to organisations whose main intentions are to increase the level of awareness in safety for all the staff."

The company has delegates coming from various industries every day. Popularity is attributed to its state-of-the art facility, service and multilingual experienced male and female instructors.

Enertech has not just gained local companies as regular clients, but also individuals who decide to trust the professional service provided.

Another important player in HSE training in Qatar is Petrotec.

According to Petrotec Training Manager Hanna Lasrado:

"Employees using equipment must become competent for the purpose of maintaining a healthy and safe working environment, preventing sources of pollution and conserving natural resources."

"In our oil and gas industry, it is especially prevalent for those personnel who work in hazardous areas of their fields to show competency in their work. HSE training covers a range of skills."
