Nanjing/Shanghai, Jun 21, 2018
To echo the program of National Safe Production Month, WACKER and the Work Safety Administration of Nanjing Jiangbei New Area, jointly held an “Open-to-Public Dayˮ with the theme “Safety before growthˮ at WACKER’s Nanjing production site. The activities included safety lectures given by WACKER’s Nanjing site, a safety demonstration of personal protective equipment (PPE) by the Work Safety Administration, an exhibition on “Responsible Careˮ as well as applications of WACKER products. About 100 people participated in the event, such as representatives from Nanjing Work Safety Administration, several departments of Jiangbei New Area, a number of companies in Jiangbei New Area, Luhe Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, instructors from Nanjing Polytechnic Institute and resident representatives from Changlu and Dachang neighborhoods.
“Open-to-Public Dayˮ is one of WACKER’s traditional events held every year. This time, WACKER’s Nanjing site additionally organized three professional safety lectures, which covered dust explosion prevention, root cause analysis (RCA) and the use of process safety analysis tools in analyzing risk scenarios. The Work Safety Administration of Jiangbei New Area also gave a safety demonstration of safety shoes and helmets, which allowed visitors to experience the protection provided by the shoes and helmets for themselves, thereby increasing their awareness of wearing PPE.
Yan Weiguo, vice director of Nanjing’s Work Safety Administration, and Li Qiuwei, director of the Work Safety Administration of Jiangbei New Area, joined the attendees at the WACKER Nanjing site. Frank Shen, WACKER Nanjing site manager, welcomed the visitors and said, “as a signatory of the Responsible Care global initiative, WACKER is not only committed to continuous improvement of our own environmental, and health and safety performance, but also to sharing best practices with Chinese chemical-industry players. We hope this event can help Jiangbei Area companies to improve their safety and environmental technologies to build a harmonious community together.ˮ
In addition to the “Open-to-Public Dayˮ in Nanjing, WACKER will also open its Zhangjiagang integrated silicone manufacturing site in Jiangsu Yangtze River International Chemical Industry Park in July 2018.
