Therefore, Qatar Steel launched, in 2016, a Safety Transformation Program (AMAN) across the company, in order to enhance the safety culture among all employees, educate them about the basic health and safety principles and regulations. Our vision for sustainable development lies in transforming Qatar Steel as one of leading steel companies that are applying the highest HSE standards.
