Based on its Sustainability Roadmap, Qatar Steel is committed to zero harm to its employees and contractors and will continue to build systems and culture of safety among its operations, backed up with performance monitoring to ensure this objective is achieved and maintained. Qatar Steel is subjected to legal, regulatory and license conditions surrounding occupational health, safety and environmental compliance. We continue to monitor our HSE performance based against world benchmarking KPI’s, and are proud to announce that we are amongst the leaders of the Steel industry in this aspect.
Qatar Steel HSE department provides advisory and supportive safety, health and environmental related to all employees, contractors and visitors, in line with current good practice and industry standards, along with working with all departments in identifying and developing suitable systems and procedures to ensure compliance with their duties.

Visible Felt Leadership is one of the cornerstones of Qatar Steel’s HSE management strategy, and many leading indicators are monitored throughout the year to ensure plans are put into action. Collaboration and partnerships, including workers engagement further enhances a strong understanding of what needs to be done by all to achieve the goal of Zero Harm.
