DoE workshop

 The Abu Dhabi Department of Energy (DoE) – the government entity in charge of ensuring the energy sector’s excellence and sustainability in the emirate – held an awareness workshop covering the major initiatives and the newly introduced amendments to the Incident Reporting Regulations.

Attended by representatives from 72 entities active within the Abu Dhabi energy sector over the course of two days (June 26-27, 2019), the workshop sought to introduce attendees to the MoU signed between DoE and Abu Dhabi Civil Defense, which seeks to promote mutual cooperation to enhance prevention and response capabilities, as well as to encourage best practices and contingency planning within the energy sector’s critical facilities.

Discussions explored potential challenges and fostered an exchange of expertise and lessons learned among attendees: Al Ain Distribution Company introduced its best practices, showcasing the results of the project to develop health and safety standards, which included developing software that allows users to report any defect or incidents in Al Ain’s Distribution Network.

Abdul Rahman Alalawi, HSE Director at the Abu Dhabi Department of Energy, said: “We adhere to a holistic approach that seeks to develop and improve the workplace, and that promotes a more efficient use of resources across the energy sector in Abu Dhabi.
