Office Safety





The Barzan Onshore Project believes that offices are not exempt from the need to identify and cope with any associated hazards that may potentially cause accidents or injuries seen in construction sites. This helps to ensure that everyone is on the same page, working towards its commitment to "Zero Incidents". 



BARZAN SHE&S Management implements a robust Office Safety program that includes the implementation of awateness campaigns:


Awareness Campaigns: Office Safety Awareness aims to remind all office employees to ensure Safety in their workplaces.

  • Avoid walking and reading at the same time.
  • Never leave file cabinets open and unattended
  • Never run in the office.
  • Don't carry more than you are capable of.
  • Avoid placing extension cords on the floor.
  • Always keep aisle ways clear.
  • Do not overload sockets.
  • Take care when using sharp objects.
  • Unplug paper shredders after use. 
  • Clean up any spillages quickly
  • Avoid distractions on stairs
  • Follow MSDS chemicals handling guides




Office Safety Inspection: The office inspection aims to improve good housekeeping that includes ergonomic assessment, etc...
