We engage stakeholders to obtain a common understanding and unity of effort. This focus on building relationships with our clients and providing quality services enables the achievement of effective, coherent health and safety capability.
In the Middle East health and safety standards are lower than would be acceptable by international requirements, the predominant reason being the fatalistic nature of the Arab culture. However, the majority of businesses and individuals are oblivious to this fact. The 'safety net' of health and safety values that permeate into the daily fabric of western life has caused a false sense of security to many.
This assumption results in businesses' risk exposure being at higher levels than realized due to a lack of mitigation of unidentified high impact threats, which could lead to crisis. Although compliance may be achieved to the standard of the host country, it often falls short of international standards.
Alams Consultants identify risk in the existing health and safety structure of our clients and educate stakeholders accordingly. Our specialists can advise on health and safety policy, processes and procedures and also implement them into existing systems. These systems can be developed to defined international benchmarks, with performance measured and reviewed along the way.
Health and safety governance in the Middle East is slowly moving towards parity with international standards, businesses that are reactive to these changes are exposed to risk. We embed a proactive health and safety management mindset into every level of our client’s organization, reducing risk and promoting efficiency.
