After we presented our preliminary data to the larger PAMF-wide QISC
in December 2009, the committee decided to change the way PAMF presented physician non-English language proficiency information on its website by using the adapted ILR scale.
He says that QISC sees that now, more than ever, the importance of highlighting the major risks within this sector, and he believes that the Construction Week Qatar Awards is an essential networking opportunity for QISC: "Last year's awards were a great success for QISC, so we feel this opportunity would be a big one to miss.
"With the event celebrating the country's achievements as well as recognising and rewarding individual excellence, QISC feels the awards play an important role for all involved within this division."
The airline's chief technical officer Kieran James Graham received the award from QISC business development manager Andy Reid and ECITB main board director Julian Gammage.
Qatar Airways' participation in the Safety Passport Scheme in conjunction with QISC and ECITB will enhance the safety culture and health and safety education of the airline's engineering staff, Graham explained.
These preliminary results informed the decision by the PAMF QISC to distribute questionnaires during clinic visits instead of via mail or telephone surveys.
Resources were allocated by the PAMF QISC to cover the temporary increased work flow in the first quarter, and costs for IT reprogramming the EHR to capture this data (approximately 70 programming hours, or $5000).
QISC Instructors are fully qualified and approved by ECITB.
QISC believe the way forward is the ECITB Health and Safety Foundation Level and strongly believe the scheme would be a great contributor to the welfare, health and safety competency and ensures that the entire work force on a construction site throughout Qatar has the basic fundamentals of health and safety.
New workers on Qatar's various construction projects should have to pass through health and safety schools of excellence, according to Qatar International Safety Centre's (QISC
) business development manager, Andy Reid.
While Qatar is in a state of importing numerous businesses and companies as its markets continue to swell under its mass development; importing best practices and international standards is equally important and something that QISC
Andy Reid, QISC
's business development manager, said: "QISC
is now delivering to all industries in Qatar the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) Foundation; Advanced and Supervisor courses.
