Abu Dhabi Emirate Environment, Health and Safety Management System
Abu Dhabi Government acknowledges the increasing and positive role being played by private and government entities in promoting good environment, health and safety practices in working places. By creating a well-defined and structured Environment, Health and Safety Management System (EHSMS) that is to be embedded into the daily activities of these entities, the Government of Abu Dhabi has provided the framework that ensures long-term success in identifying, meeting and exceeding environment, health and safety objectives and goals of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
The EHSMS Regulatory Framework has been developed to outline the structure to be adopted and requirements to be met by entities seeking to establish an EHSMS. Each component of the EHSMS has been designed to be implemented in an integrated way to reinforce the objective of improvement to the EHS performance of individual entities, sectors and the Emirate overall.
Therefore, private and government entities should meet, and strive to exceed, the requirements of relevant Emirate and UAE legislation, by developing, implementing and maintaining a compliant EHSMS.
