McWane Gulf Showcases EHS/HR Awareness Month Activities
July 8, 2015
McWane facilities around the world planned various activities during the month of June to reaffirm our commitment to our EHS/HR programs. At McWane Gulf LLC located in Abu Dhabi, UAE, team members kicked off the month long event with a town hall meeting hosted by General Manager Ray Schofield. Ray talked to the team about the importance of the environmental, health, safety and HR programs in place at McWane and reconfirmed his commitment to these programs.
They talked to team members about how to avoid heat stress and made sure they were aware that oral hydration salt packets were available, if needed. Mid-day breaks were also instituted so team members could avoid working during the hottest part of the day.
They also conducted training on hazard identification and risk assessment. As part of this training, team members were asked to identify the EHS hazards associated with their work/process. The team also received basic firefighting training and taught the correct way to use a fire extinguisher.
