Drawing on Brenntag‘s experience as the largest global distributor of chemicals and ingredients, Alistair Hunter, Head of Compliance, Brenntag UK & Ireland, provides perspectives on safety in the chemical distribution including sustainability, regulatory compliance, risk management and various safety optimisation techniques.
With tens of thousands of deliveries undertaken by Brenntag UK & Ireland every month, it is impossible to underestimate the importance of safety in the company’s operations. "Safety First" is a key principle for Brenntag and a number one priority. Building an all-encompassing safety and quality culture that permeates all levels of an organisation requires a holistic approach which considers several overarching aspects to ensure safe, secure and efficient distribution of chemicals throughout the supply chain.
The session will pay specific attention to the personal aspect of safety and will share insights on the initiatives Brenntag implemented to enhance its operational safety performance.
