Health, safety and environment (HSA)

CEGCO places the highest priority on making safety our way of life. It is the top priority for all CEGCO people, contractors and communities, and it is one of our most important value across our culture, businesses and daily operations. Every CEGCO employee has the power and authority to stop any activity that is perceived to be unsafe.

The main goal of CEGCO is to improve lives by providing safe, reliable and sustainable energy. We aim to achieve 100% commitment of every staff member and contractor to comply with our safety procedures and this is the way towards creating World Class Safety Culture.

There are four CEGCO Safety Beliefs that are in the core of the CEGCO Occupational Health and Safety Management System:

  • Safety comes first for our people, our contractors and the individuals in our communities, and all the activities need to be conducted in a safe manner that promotes personal health, safety and well-being.
  • All occupational incidents can be prevented.
  • Working safely is a condition of employment at CEGCO and each individual is responsible for its own safety as well as the safety of their teammates & the people in the communities in which we work
  • All CEGCO people and contractors have the right to stop the work if they identify an unsafe working condition or an unsafe act

(CEGCO) has developed and implemented Environmental & Health and Safety management system to demonstrate its ability to control Environment & occupational health and safety through the effective application of the system, including continual improvement. The Environmental & health and safety management system complies with the requirements of the international standard ISO 14001:2015 & OHSAS 18001:2007.

CEGCO has fulfilled this requirement by establishing Environmental Aspect Identification & Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control procedures and ensuring the effective implementation of HSE procedures; to ensure continuing suitability, adequacy, and effectiveness, and to identify any possible failures or breakdowns, as well as opportunities for improvement.

This OHSAS18001:2007, ISO 14001:2004Standardsas a part of Integrated Management system (IMS) is intended to address occupational health, safety and Environment in CEGCO Head Office & Power Stations: Aqaba Thermal Power Station (ATPS), Rehab Power Station and Risha Power Station sites and activities and to all CEGCO’s contracts as operation and maintenance service provider..

Operational control and implementation of the Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental Management at our plants is done through a series of planned inspections, safety walks and audits. These activities aim to provide control, independent assurance of implementation and effectiveness and compliance of the adopted health, safety and environmental measures with the current legal regulations and CEGCO Corporate standards.

CEGCO sets annual safety goals, which include the number of walks and inspections, number of HSE observation every staff member is obliged to carry out. In addition, set the LTI targeted rate.
