Safety initiatives across three continents

Safety workshops


The 2018 WCC Safety Seminar will be held in Perth Australia on July 25 at the Esplanade Hotel Fremantle.  

Coogee, a CI (Chorine Institute) member since 1987, is working with CI and American Chemistry Council staff to coordinate local logistics since there is no regional chlor-alkali association in Australia.  The seminar will include a tour of the Coogee facility near Perth on July 26.   

The seminar will be focused on process safety and all three significant Australian producers Coogee, Ixom, and NuFarm are participating in the planning.

The registration page will be hosted on the CI website along with Hotel information.  The seminar promises to be information packed and a great sharing of experience.  Please register now

Sharing knowledge from incidents, and the lessons learned, is one of the cornerstones of the continuous improvement of Euro Chlor’s safety advice.

However, this is sometimes easier to say than to do!  The number of incident reports that have been shared over recent years is rather low, compared to the number of incidents reported by Euro Chlor members in the sustainability review.

One of the new initiatives underway to address this is a workshop on incident reporting and experience sharing, which will take place in Brussels on 12 & 13 June 2018.

During the workshop, Euro Chlor Member Company will draw on use a variety of case studies to identify to optimise opportunities for information sharing. As of March 2018, 27 participants from 16 companies have registered for the workshop.

Ton Manders, Technical & Safety Director, Euro Chlor says: “With this workshop we are aiming to increase awareness of the importance of robust incident analysis, and of sharing the knowledge from the lessons learned. We will also get new ideas as to how Euro Chlor can improve the information gathering and collection concerning incidents and lessons learned, and of course build the valuable network amongst the members.”

Please note: participation is limited to chlorine producing members of Euro Chlor, but the results will be shared with the WCC members.
