AT DP WORLD, WE CARE.

Our approach to Safety is based on caring for our people, environment, communities in which we work and stakeholder partners.

SAFE TOGETHER

Everyone goes home safe with our zero-harm approach.

Our goal is to make sure everyone goes home safe by embracing a zero-harm approach in our business. We can do this through a group-wide shift in culture where SAFETY is to be embraced as part of our everyday actions and mindset.

We have a comprehensive understanding of business risk and our Strategy provides practical approaches to eliminating or reducing them.

Highlights:

  • Our Safe Together tagline is intended to ensure we all work together through engagement of our people. We understand that we are stronger when we work together and this is what SAFE TOGETHER represents.
  • Group HSE management systems provide a framework for the actions that DP World implements. These meet international safety standards such as ISO 45001 (Occupational HSE) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems).

COMMITMENTS WE LIVE BY

FUNDAMENTALS

We will: commit to lead by example, take time to identify hazards and risk controls are in place, stop unsafe work and report unsafe acts and conditions, look out for ourselves and everyone in the workplace, present to work fit for duty, use personal electronic devices in designated areas only, and always wear our PPE and ensure it is maintained in good condition.

PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION

We will: always be seen and separate ourselves from mobile equipment, never enter 'no walk zones' unless authorized and controlled, only use designated walkways and never use shortcuts, and stay alert at all time and avoid distractions in operating areas.

WORKING AT HEIGHTS

We will: remove ourselves from potential falls from height, secure tool and equipment to prevent falling objects, barricade or control access to the 'drop zone' below, and use fail prevention and protection as required.

Mobile Equipment

We will: drive to conditions and not exceed speed limits, be alert and avoid distractions when driving, always wear seatbelts, not leave equipment idling or unattended, comply with traffic management rules.

Energy Isolation

We will: confirm that hazardous energy sources have been isolated, locked and tagged, verify isolation and controls before work begins, only apply and remove our own personal lock and tag, and remain clear of isolated areas.

Handling Loads

We will: never stand or place part of our body in a crush zone between objects, not walk under or near suspended loads, follow instructions of the person in charge of the lift, adhere to exclusion zones including swing paths and safe distances, not leave suspended loads unattended, and check loads are stable, secured, and free from loose objects.

KEEPING OUR PEOPLE, ASSETS, AND STAKEHOLDERS SECURE

SECURING OUR SUPPLY CHAIN IS A BUSINESS IMPERATIVE

Keeping our people, our assets, and our stakeholders secure.

Our key objective is to keep our people, assets and stakeholders secure and to help maintain seamless and uninterrupted business operations.

We achieve this through our robust security compliance programs, risk management programs, adherence to international standards and by raising security awareness.

Highlights:

  • Our Group Security policy highlights our dedication to maintaining security compliance, enhancing our risk management and resilience, and implementing cutting-edge security solutions throughout our locations.
  • We consistently evaluate our security procedures to ensure the safety of our personnel and facilities remains uncompromised.
  • We recognize cyber risk as a significant enterprise risk and have established multiple controls to protect our information, systems, and assets. We employ a ‘Defence in Depth’ strategy to secure our users, applications, networks, and data.
