- PRESS RELEASE
The Abu Dhabi Environment, Health and Safety (AD EHS) Center signed an agreement with the UK's Institution for Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). Both organisations will now be cooperating and exchanging information on issues related to occupational health and safety.
Areas of cooperation with IOSH will include the organization of seminars, workshops and conferences, the development of standards for the registration/evaluation of occupational health and safety specialists in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, contributing to the development of awareness programmes for youth on health and occupational safety issues, in addition to participation in technical meetings organized by the IOSH's Middle East Chapter.
H.E Al Mansouri added that the AD EHS Center plans to continue liaising with other international organizations in a bid to adopt world-class best practices that are fit for the UAE working environment.
In July 2010, a delegation from the AD EHS Center visited the headquarters of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) in the United States, where OSHA officials praised the Abu Dhabi Government's efforts for initiating the Abu Dhabi Emirate Environment, Health and Safety Management System. Currently, the Center is coordinating with OSHA to sign a similar agreement.
H.E Steve Granger, President of IOSH UK, affirmed that they look forward to working with the AD EHS Center to help provide healthy, safe and sustainable work environments. IOSH Middle East Branch, which is going to liaise this cooperation, was established in 2006 to help local and international health and safety professionals promote workplaces that enable people to carry out their jobs free of injury or ill-health. He added that through working with key governmental agencies like the AD EHS Center, they will be equipped to make that happen.
