EQUATE Petrochemical Company, a global producer of petrochemicals, sponsored the 2nd Kuwait International Health, Safety & Environment Conference & Exhibition (KIHSE) 2017 to support the development of the industrial sector throughout the world.

During the event, EQUATE’s President & CEO Mohammad Husain participated in panel discussions regarding EH&S & Sustainability, as well as having a cleaner and safer industry, with a number of industrial leaders from Kuwait and around the world.

Husain highlighted the importance, responsibility and role of EH&S management at any organization, adding that “Sometimes, optimizing EH&S costs might include arising risks, especially if adequate risk analysis is not performed.”

Husain added, “Achieving EH&S excellence is not about unlimited spending, rather it is about properly executing risk analysis, setting optimization 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.”

Husain 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.”
