Bapco achieves safety milestone
Dubai, December 4, 2013
Bapco has achieved a major milestone in terms of safety and reliability, with the refinery reliability clock (RRC) reaching 90 days without a reset on November 29.
"This is the sixth time that we have achieved the 90-day target since the introduction of the RRC in 2009," said Bapco deputy chief executive for refining and marketing Ebrahim Talib.
Talib is also chairman of environment, health and safety committee at the company.
"Within the coming weeks we, hopefully, will achieve three million employee hours without a lost time injury for Bapco and contractor personnel," he added.
"It should not be forgotten that safety and reliability go hand in hand at Bapco and our challenge now is to sustain current performance and ensure that unplanned shutdowns are mitigated through diligent application of our routine work duties and predictive and preventative maintenance activities.
"Our objective is to motivate employees towards reliable operation of the refinery, to raise the level of visibility of refinery performance.
"Bapco continues to strive for excellence through implementing work habits and business processes based on a robust safety and reliability culture," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
