EQUATE Petrochemical Company emerged, for the second consecutive year, as the Gold Award winner in the Manufacturing (Hydrocarbon) Category of the prestigious Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Excellence Award 2010.

EQUATE received the award during an official ceremony under the patronage of Kuwait Oil Company's Deputy Chairman and Deputy Managing Director for Planning & Gas Mohammad Hussain.

On this occasion, EQUATE President & CEO Hamad Al-Terkait said “This success is mainly due to the commitment of EQUATE employees to prioritize the application of HSE best practices. Such prioritizing involved the introduction of several steps that included HSE programs, Six Sigma projects and decreasing Recordable Injury Rate (RIR).”

“Through unwavering commitment, EQUATE has achieved over 22 Million Safe Work Hours (SWH), which is a true World Class record,” noted Al-Terkait.

On his part, EQUATE Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) Department Leader Faisal Malallah said: “To sustain its continuous success, EQUATE launched a number of EH&S initiatives, such as the Gulf's first CO2 emission reduction project, Kuwait's first seawater cooling towers, an advanced Sulfur Recovery Unit, and an in-house developed Emergency Services System. In addition, EQUATE implements its own unique set of EH&S policies, guidelines and regulations that go beyond what is required by Kuwait's regulatory bodies.”

The award is organized by the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Kuwait Chapter as part of the ASSE Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Excellence Awards using top-notch international measures for scoring and valuation.

In appreciation for its sustainable development efforts, EQUATE previously earned the His Highness the Amir Award for the Best Plant in Kuwait, the Award of Best Gulf Company in Recruiting Nationals, as well as Kuwait's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award in the Industrial Sector. In addition, it has received the Highly Commended Best Community Program Award during the First Middle East CSR Award Summit.

Established in 1995, EQUATE is an international joint venture between Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC), The Dow Chemical Company (Dow), Boubyan Petrochemical Company (BPC) and Qurain Petrochemical Industries Company (QPIC). Commencing production in 1997, EQUATE is the single operator of a fully integrated world-scale manufacturing facility producing over 5 million tons annually of high-quality petrochemical products which are marketed throughout the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Europe.
