Fugro SAE has been awarded the Golden SAM Runner up HSE Award for Year 2012. The Golden SAM (Safety Always Matters) is awarded annually to the Fugro company that has shown high quality submissions, commitment to safety and has achieved a consistent outstanding safety performance among all Fugro companies worldwide. A total of 21 applications from 7 business lines were taken into consideration by the HSE Team and the Executive Committee, judged against a number of hard and soft criteria. The effort put into the applications and supporting evidence again resulted in quality submissions and significant progress in improving performance in the field of HSE.
The Award was received by John Evans (General Manager) and Wessam Mamdouh (QHSE Manager) in the 50th Anniversary celebration ceremony held in Cairo.
Furthermore, Fugro SAE’s QA-HSE Management System was audited this year by BP in Fugro SAE office in Maadi, Cairo. The audit was carried out according to the requirements of the OGP standards.
Fugro SAE scored 84% as a total score of all audits. Auditors highlighted that this is the highest OGP audit score they have seen of all the geophysical companies BP have audited.
We believe this reward is a well-deserved merit after many successful years in the offshore survey business, during which we worked hard to adequately maintain and constantly improve the operation of the Health and Safety Management System, covering all onshore and offshore operations. Our HSEMS is a structured method of assessing and managing hazards and risks which may exist in any work situation in which the company’s employees may find themselves. The HSEMS is structured according to the QHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 14001:2004 standards requirements and it include policies, planning, implementation and operation, monitoring and measurement, and management review.
HSE planning is an integral part of the system and includes annual HSE plan, HSE training plan, risk management and project specific HSE Plans.
For each project, a comprehensive project HSE plan is always produced. This plan is designed to present, in an easily understandable manner, all procedures, actions and information needed for the safe conduct of the project and in the event of an emergency.
The project HSE plan includes an interface/bridging document that interfaces the Fugro SAE HSE system and procedures with those of the client and sub-contractors.
Fugro SAE’s HSEMS is accredited to OHSAS 18001:2007, ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004
