KUWAIT, September 25, 2018

Equate Group, a global producer of petrochemicals, said it has achieved over 50 million continuous safe work hours without a day away from work case (DAWC) throughout its industrial complex in Kuwait.

As the owner and single operator of several manufacturing units in Kuwait, Equate’s industrial complex annually produces more than four million tonnes of ethylene, ethylene glycol (EG), polyethylene (PE), styrene monomer (SM), propylene (PP), paraxylene (PX), benzene (BZ) and heavy aromatics (HA), said a statement from the company.

Equate Group vice president for operations Arnd Thomas, said: “Safety is not only about having standards and policies, rather it is about a cultural lifestyle and a never-ending journey at work, home and everywhere you are.”

“At our company, safety is the number one priority that starts with each one of us. Our success in this field is not an individual achievement as it is an expression of our partnership and teamwork with the entire workforce contributing and working every second of the day to this success,” he said.

Equate Group global environment, health and safety (EH&S) director Mohammad Al-Shamary said: “Through an intense focus on safety, we have executed some of the globe’s biggest turnarounds (TA) while setting new milestones for efficiency and operational excellence.”

“We look forward to continuing these accomplishments in all our locations around the world to keep people and communities safe,” he said.

In appreciation of this achievement by its personnel, Equate hosted a celebration that was attended by its leaders, employees and contractors in recognition of their contribution to long-term commitment and success, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
