Milaha, Qatar’s leading Maritime and Logistics Service provider, has been recognized for achieving a best practice in the British Safety Council Five Star Health and Safety Audit, as well as the Five Star Environmental Audit, making it one of the very few companies in both Qatar and the GCC to hold the coveted five-star grading.

This achievement demonstrates Milaha’s commitment towards the continuous improvement of its health, safety and environmental management systems and associated arrangements.

Milaha was awarded a total of 8 five-star ratings, following a comprehensive, quantified, and robust evaluation of its policies, processes, and practices.

Commenting on this achievement, Mr. Saleh Abdullah Al Haroon, Executive Vice President of Support Services at Milaha, said: “We are always committed to operate in a safe and efficient manner, while developing a robust health and safety culture, to ensure the well-being of our employees, and the safety of our customers, stakeholders and assets.

For his part, David Parr, Policy and Technical Services Director at the British Safety Council, said: “The award of a five-star grading following our occupational best practice Health and Safety Audit is an outstanding achievement and is reflective of a proactive organisation which is committed to continual improvement in its health and safety arrangements and managing risks to workers’ health, safety and welfare.”
