KPC up­dates safety sys­tems to keep pace with global de­vel­op­ments

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Kuwait Pe­tro­leum Cor­po­ra­tion (KPC) has up­dated the health, safety and se­cu­rity sys­tems in the oil sec­tor to keep pace with the lat­est in­ter­na­tional reg­u­la­tions, Op­er­a­tions Safety Team Leader Hu­moud Ha­mad Al-Ajmi said yes­ter­day.

Ajmi made his re­marks yes­ter­day on the side­lines of KPC’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Gulf Safety Fo­rum (GSF 2016). He stressed that the new safety mea­sures taken by the KPC stems from the com­pany’s keen­ness to keep abreast of the lat­est de­vel­op­ments of safety pro­ce­dures. “This was re­flected on the ac­ci­dent rate of the in­sti­tu­tion, which is less than the cor­re­spond­ing rates com­pared to the in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies op­er­at­ing in the same sec­tor.”, he added.

GSF 2016 was held in Doha and was jointly or­ga­nized by the Gulf Or­ga­ni­za­tion for In­dus­trial Con­sult­ing (GOIC) and Euro Pe­tro­leum Con­sul­tants (EPC). The Fo­rum brought to­gether key in­dus­try play­ers from across the Mid­dle East to dis­cuss strate­gies for con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment of safety pro­ce­dures as well as share suc­cess­ful case stud­ies and roadmaps to­wards achiev­ing the goal of zero ac­ci­dents. In­ter­na­tional safety ex­perts and providers of safety tools and tech­nolo­gies pre­sented the lat­est method­olo­gies which can as­sist com­pa­nies to achieve these goals. —KUNA
