Wuhai construction project completed without a recordable incident
The critical role of safety in our culture is exemplified through our safety efforts during construction of our new fumed silica manufacturing facility in Wuhai, China.
From the start of the project to its recent completion, safety was a key focus for our teams. We completed the project having achieved nearly 1.6 million work hours without a recordable injury amongst our employees and contractors. In 2018 alone, nearly 750,000 work hours were completed injury-free. This performance is attributed to strong safety management and implementation, which included a high level of risk assessment, detailed safety plans and contractor supervision, optimization of construction resources, and thorough safety training. The safety culture of zero incidents has been deeply rooted in the minds of all personnel and has helped demonstrate our commitment to safety to the surrounding community and our industry peers.
