In Compliance with Occupational Safety & Health Management System Abu Dhabi (OSHAD)
On 1st February 2010, the Executive Council of Abu Dhabi Emirate issued a Decree approving the establishment of OSHAD Center. The Center aims to ensure the implementation of Abu Dhabi Emirate Occupational Safety & Health Management System through provision of an integrated regulatory framework for management of all issues related to occupational health and safety and through control of negative impacts resulting from working places.
An Occupational Safety & Health Management System (OSHMS) is a management tool that integrates all Occupational Safety & Health (OSH) management components of a business into one coherent system. The integration of these components allows the business to achieve its objectives efficiently by managing its impacts to the environment and minimizing occupational health and safety risks. This integrated approach requires combining all OSH internal business management practices into one system; and the different management components of the OSHAD SF require effective links between them to ensure a complete system that operates as a whole
The OSHAD SF incorporates the key requirements from the following International Standards: Environmental Management System (ISO 14001); Occupational Health and Safety System (OHSAS 18001); Environmental Management System Auditing (ISO 19011) and Risk Management Principles (ISO 31000), into one integrated system that also recognizes the commitments and aspirations of Abu Dhabi Government
Under OSHAD, there are currently 11 Sector Regulatory Authorities in Abu Dhabi Emirate these include:
The Construction HSE Plans are developed on the Guideline of OSHAD RI COP 53 for both Construction and Operational Phases.
The primary purpose of this plan is to provide a guideline for preventing any accidents which may injure Employees or damage property of the Company, Contractor and his Third Party at the construction site shall abide by all safety rules and other regulations imposed at the site by the provisions of applicable laws, rules and regulations, including rules and procedures as applicable from the Client.
The plan covers the requirements of the accident prevention rules and safety program to be applied to the construction work
Identifying and documenting risks systematically
Red Sea Consultancy is a leading provider of HAZID/HAZOP, conducting over 70 analyses every year for numerous clients. There are several consultants with substantial HAZID experience which enable us to put up the best HAZID team for each assignment.
HAZard IDentification (HAZID) is a well known and well documented method. A HAZID is a systematic assessment to identify hazards and problem areas associated with plant, system, operation, design and maintenance. HAZID is used both as part of a Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) and as a standalone analysis for i.e. installation, modification, replacement, upgrading, reduction, isolation, lifting.
What we do
RED SEA has a pool of experts within the fields of technical safety, human and organization disciplines. The experienced pool enables us to put up either a highly specialized team or a multi-skilled team depending on the task. RED SEA provides a strong third party with our knowledge and experience in the field. We also provide courses on the HAZID methodology.

Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP)
Systematically identifying and documenting hazards and operability issues
Red Sea Consultancy is a leading provider of HAZID and HAZOP, conducting over 70 analyses every year for numerous clients. A HAZOP study is used to verify the integrity of design or procedures with respect to safety and operability. We have extensive experience and provide highly skilled multi-disciplined teams.
HAZard and OPerability (HAZOP) is a well known and well documented study. HAZOP is used as part of a Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) or as a standalone analysis. HAZOP is a more detailed review technique than HAZID. The purpose of the HAZOP is to investigate how the system or plant deviate from the design intent and create risk for personnel and equipment and operability problems. HAZOP studies have been used with great success within chemical and the petroleum industry to obtain safer, more efficient and more reliable plants. HAZOP has become a standard method in the design of process system in the North Sea.
What we do
RED SEA has a strong and experienced pool of experts within technical safety. We have extensive experience with HAZOP both as part of the design of process plant either as an independent risk analysis or a preliminary study and modification. This also includes procedural HAZOPs. RED SEA can play an important role as third party. We also provide courses in the HAZOP methodology.
