Muhammad Suhail Khawaja
Corporate HSE Engineer
First National Operation and Maintenance Co. (NOMAC)
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

“Suhail initiated the critical analysis of the accident to identify the human factor involvement in past incidents. During analysis, he observed that most of the injuries would have been avoided by simply stopping the unsafe job by co-workers. In order to resolve this issue, he developed stop-work authority (SWA) guidelines and [conducted] a detailed orientation and demonstration on the process map at each site. SWA cards were issued to each employee that provide the employee power, obligation and authority to STOP unsafe jobs. In 2017 and 2018, more than 370 unsafe jobs were stopped.”
