Through lively discussion, informative presentations, and small-group interaction, Trinseo employees discover ways to embrace safety in their everyday work and how to encourage safe behaviors from others. Since 2011, Trinseo has also conducted global virtual crisis simulation drills with executive management, key functional leaders, and plant operations and environmental, health, and safety (EH&S) leaders. The goal is to practice resolving an immediate situation, returning the company to productivity, and evaluating and improving our crisis response processes, all while safeguarding every employee, the community, and the environment.
The attendees all showed great enthusiasm for the important basics of process safety technology, which made the workshops a success," said Jeroen de Maat, reflecting on the Zhangjiagang, China Safety Training Week he led with fellow process safety technology leader Harry White in September 2016. "Paired with this enthusiasm, the attendees' knowledge about process safety and acting in line with the rules are needed to keep our company's process safety incidents at zero."
As part of our comprehensive and ongoing safety training efforts, Trinseo manufacturing employees logged a total of 60,440 training hours in 2016, an average of 39 hours per employee.
