He then noted that this responsibility is reflected in the government’s interest in implementing an occupational safety and health system that keeps up with developments in the emirate.

It uniqueness comes from being the only application to automate and regulate all aspects of occupational safety and health in a unified and consistent manner.

By creating this application, OSHAD seeks to facilitate the process of providing data related to the management of occupational safety and health in a unified and comprehensive manner.

Operations related to “Al Adaa” system will be ran by the units developed within the application, which include about 40,000 relevant public and private entities. Occupational safety and health requirements may be submitted through the application, and review and adoption operations can be made through it by OSHAD. Furthermore, the application supports performance reports, notices and information about accidents, awareness notices, and follow-up on corrective measures. It should be noted that OSHAD has held a series of workshops to train employees at the entities concerned on how to best use the application.

Al Jabri further stated that “The development of the application was completed in two stages. The first consisted of managing the operations of the Abu Dhabi occupational safety and health system such as approval processes, reporting methods and the submission of accident notices. The second stage included inspection and auditing operations, and corrective measures with the aim of guaranteeing an integral implementation of the system’s requirements.”
