    It is essential that there is a clear understanding by all concerned on the basic health, safety and environment principles to be applied at EMAL when work needs to be carried out by contractors. This approach is necessary to ensure that current legislation, procedural and industry guidelines are adhered to and both the Contractor and EMAL meet their statutory obligations. The selection of contractors based upon their safety and environmental awareness credentials is essential. Contractors must be able to prove their commercial and technical competence and the competence of their staff at all levels to undertake the work. 2. PURPOSE The purpose of this procedure is to promote the health, safety and environmental responsibilities of contractors and EMAL employees by establishing minimum standards for control during contract work on EMAL premises. In the contract specification EMAL will provide appropriate health, safety and environmental information to the contractor regarding the contract work. This information could include details of the environment within which the work will be carried out (risk assessments), existing drawings and design information, hazardous substances present, arrangements for site access, temporary accommodation and lay-down and storage areas, potential overlaps with EMAL and other contractors' activities, specific site rules to be observed and arrangements for liaison with EMAL during the execution of the contract. In the arrangements for managing the contract work the contractor shall take account of the information provided by EMAL particularly with regard to any hazards to health, safety and environment. The contractor shall also take account of any hazards created in carrying out the work. This document describes the arrangements required from the contractor for the management of health, safety and environment and highlights the most common hazards and hazardous activities encountered during work on EMAL premises together with the minimum acceptable standards for control to be exercised by the contractor. The list of hazards and hazardous activities is not to be considered exhaustive but contains those most frequently encountered. 3. SCOPE This document shall apply to all EMAL main contractors, subcontractors, contracted services, vendors and visitors working on the site. For the purposes of this document all parties will be collectively referred to as the contractor or contractors. This document does not in any way relieve contractors from their contractual requirement to comply comprehensively with all EMAL EHS procedures and standards.

    Relevant standards and procedures shall be consulted for further details and guidance as specific issues arise. This document does not in any way relieve contractors from their legal obligation to comply with all aspects of legislation as laid down by the relevant UAE authorities. 4. REFERENCES

    5.9. Method Statement

    A Method Statement is a document, which describes steps required to complete a particular job safely.

    5.10. Risk Assessment

    A document that identifies hazards encountered in each step of a job and defines control

    measures to prevent release of those hazards. It further calculates the risk level in each

    step and adds more controls, if required so that the residual risk is as low as reasonably

    practice (ALARP).

    5.11. ALARP (As Low As Reasonably Practicable)

    "ALARP" is short for "as low as reasonably practicable". Reasonably practicable involves

    weighing a risk against the trouble, time and money needed to control it. Thus, ALARP

    describes the level to which we expect to see workplace risks controlled.
