Ma'aden to manage health & safety with IHS solution
IHS' Operational Excellence Solution will provide enterprise-wide management of environment, health and safety initiative
Saudi Arabian Mining Co (Ma'aden) has selected software from IHS to provide management of its Environment, Health & Safety Initiative, EHS1.
Ma'aden will standardise on IHS' Operational Excellence Solution for Global EHS System of Record, as an enterprise-wide solution for EHS across its six subsidiaries and industry business lines. The company had already deployed HIS solutions for its Ma'aden Aluminium division, and decided to extend the solutions to the rest of the company.
"The Ma'aden Aluminum division deployed this solution last year with IHS and we knew from the success of that project that IHS was a trusted partner committed to our success and to continuing to expand their presence to the Middle East, " said Ahmed Ajabnoor Director, Corporate Sustainability Assurance (CSA), Ma'aden. "That project set the benchmark for our corporate objectives. We are excited to find a single vendor who has the breadth of offerings to support and underpin our entire EHS1 initiative."
"Ma'aden is an industry leader with this EHS1 initiative and we're happy to be partnering to help them achieve their operational excellence goals for continuous improvement," said J. Scott Lockhart, IHS senior vice president, Operational Excellence and Risk Management. "This project will serve as a benchmark for other companies in the region as they strive to align policies, processes and systems to deliver sustainable improvements in business performance."
The IHS Operational Excellence Solution will enable Ma'aden to manage risk, drive workflow efficiency and optimise resources - uncovering opportunities for innovation and growth. Global industry leaders are increasingly focused on aligning elements of operational excellence and identifying a new competitive advantage.
IHS enables organisations to address a broad spectrum of challenges associated with environmental performance, health and safety, risk management, product stewardship and compliance assurance.
