EQUATE Petrochemical Company announced achieving 19 Million Safe Work Hours without a single a single Day Away from Work Case (DAWC).

Commenting on this achievement, EQUATE's Environment, Health & Safety Leader (EH&S) Yousef Al-Gharabally said “As safety is an international requirement for various sectors, this is a true industrial milestone for Kuwait as it not only includes EQUATE's employees, but also workers from contractor companies conducting business with EQUATE.”

Al-Gharabally added “In line with the requirements of ISO 14001, EQUATE implements several EH&S programs to ensure all its business operations and business activities are safe, environmentally sound friendly to health.”

Al-Gharabally noted “Being an international joint venture, EQUATE is one of the first companies in the Gulf to implement Six Sigma training and projects relevant to EH&S. Such things have qualified EQUATE to win the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) – Kuwait Chapter Gold Excellence Award 2009 as the top GCC company in EH&S.”

Considered one of the world's leading companies in producing Polyethylene and Ethylene Glycol, EQUATE was established in 1995 and it is presently a joint venture between Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC), The Dow Chemical Company, Boubyan Petrochemicals Company and Qurain Petrochemical Industries Company. It commenced production in 1997 and currently provides markets in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Europe with high quality petrochemical products.
