DOHA: GWC, the leading logistics provider in the State of Qatar, has been honoured and recognised for its contributions towards 10 million incident-free work hours at QAFAC’s Messaieed Industrial City.

In honour of this momentous milestone achievement in HSSE Management, QAFAC held an award ceremony to recognise the top 12 contributing contractors to this milestone, with over 500 attendees present. Senior Director of Commercial Services Naji Nassar received the award on behalf of GWC from QAFAC CEO Khaled Sultan Al Kuwari.

In addition, the assembled contractors showcased their various safety response procedures through a number of demonstrations and presentations.

At the GWC stall, visitors were demonstrated with emergency responses to chemical spills inside a warehouse and how to ideally handle that. The audience also learned about the trainings GWC provide to all its employees on its systems and organisational requirements, developing the core competencies of its staff. 

The company also displayed its safety preventative maintenance procedures aimed at ensuring the safety, health and security of its staff, in addition to minimising the company’s impact on the environment. “Our QHSE Management System provides the framework for all our service offerings and operations conducted in or by the company,” stated GWC Senior Director of Commercial Services Naji Nassar.

“It is our pleasure to utilise and share these skills to ensure that all GWC operations at QAFAC run reliably and smoothly in the safest and most secure of working environments”.

The award ceremony came after a year of renewed support for the oil and gas industry by GWC, who increased their 3PL or 4PL operations with several major industry clients, in addition to creating an oil and gas logistics supply base over 125,000 sqm in record time at the request of a newly acquired client.
