Industrial chemical producer and supplier Rain Carbon Inc. has signed a contract with DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) to work on achieving excellence in safety and on developing a stronger safety culture at its facilities around the world. The agreement follows the successful conclusion of a pilot project at Rain Carbon’s plant in Castrop Rauxel, Germany during the period 2016 – 2018 which saw a significant reduction in work-related incidents.
“We employ over 1800 people in a high hazard industry,” commented Dr Günther Weymans, COO of Rain Carbon. “We want to make sure they all have the same awareness and understanding of risks so they can return home safely at the end of every day. The aim of our collaboration with DSS is to build a learning organisation that shares best practices across sites and to achieve a stronger, more cohesive safety culture that unifies our approach to safety. Our goal is zero incidents.”
Having started in May 2019, the project is likely to take two years to complete and will involve a cluster of six sites in the US, two sites in Germany, two sites in Canada and one each in Belgium, India, the Netherlands, Poland and Russia.
Cédric Parentelli, Managing Director for Europe and North Africa at DSS says, “We are looking forward to supporting Rain Carbon by putting in place a highly effective corporate governance structure to ensure that even the smaller sites can act and address safety just as efficiently and quickly as larger ones. At the same time, we will be assisting the company with knowledge transfer and the development of safety competencies within the Corporate HSE team and across the entire organisation.”
In each country, DSS will support and work together with Rain Carbon with a team of consultants that have local language capabilities and transformational coaching expertise.
