In line with SIPCHEM’s decision to optimise and increase resilience of its operations, the project aims to utilise DuPont’s owner-operator experience and success in implementing similar process safety transformation programmes in the region.

“SIPCHEM has embraced strong principles related to safety, and is dedicated to protecting its employees,” said Ahmad A Al-Ohali, CEO of SIPCHEM.

Ibrahim A Al-Rushoud, vice-president of Operations of SIPCHEM, said, “This effort is extremely important for us. Based on DuPont’s reputation and success in the Saudi Arabian market, we have selected them as the partner to support SIPCHEM on this transformational journey.”

Johan van der Westhuyzen, managing director for DuPont Sustainable Solutions, said, “We look forward to partnering with SIPCHEM and sharing the DSS risk-based approach and learning from similar projects in the region.”

Jean-Paul Sacy, senior manager of DSS, said, “The positive shift companies have made from a compliance-driven to a risk-based approach has improved their safety performance when implemented down to the front-line. This can only be sustained by a pro-active involvement of leaders in driving change through greater engagement at all levels in the organisation.”

DSS is the operations management consulting arm of DuPont and a partner of choice for key manufacturing industries throughout the Middle East. The company has been operating in the region for more than 15 years and has assisted companies with risk management and operation excellence challenges.
