Equate Petrochemical Company recently sponsored the 2nd Kuwait International Health, Safety and Environment Conference and Exhibition (KIHSE) 2017 to support the development of the industrial sector throughout the world.
Held during 15-16 February 2017, the conference was attended by global experts from the industrial sector to discuss several topics about environment, health and safety (EH&S). During the event, Mohammad Husain, president and CEO, Equate, participated in various panel discussions on EH&S and sustainability, as well as having a cleaner and safer industry, with a number of other industrial leaders from Kuwait and around the world.
Highlighting the importance, responsibility and role of EH&S management at any organisation, Husain observed: “Sometimes, optimising EH&S costs might include arising risks, especially if adequate risk analysis is not performed.”
“Achieving EH&S excellence is not about unlimited spending, rather it is about properly executing risk analysis, and setting optimisation objectives through training and cost of safety equipment, as well as simplifying safety standards. This requires innovation-based planning and execution to ensure optimum results,” added Husain.
Husain further noted: “The safety of people and equipment must never be compromised to save cost. The partnership with our human capital to deliver outstanding performance includes utmost safety as a critical element.”
Equate’s participation in the conference also included EH&S leader Mohammad Al-Shamary, as well as two specialised presentations on industrial safety by process safety expert Abdullah Al-Hazza and EH&S delivery leader Rajasekar Jayanandhan.
