DuPont to provide consultation and coaching to supervisors and top management

In a recent communiqué, Aggreko, has announced its collaboration with DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) to further improve its safety standards at its international headquarters in the UAE.

According to the announcement, DuPont will provide comprehensive safety management consulting and coaching for all Aggreko supervisors, as well as representatives from top management. Starting with its staff in Dubai, approximately 180 people will undergo behaviour-based training that focuses on safety observations and the management of on-going dialogue with employees to encourage safe work practices, Aggreko added.

The DuPont engagement is an integral part of the commitment by Aggreko management to constantly and consistently improve its safety management system to ensure the safety of employees, processes and equipments, said Aggreko.

Expressing his thoughts on the collaboration, Colin Gaston, Operations Director, Aggreko International Projects, said, “DuPont is globally recognised as one of the safest companies in the world. Based on its know-how, expertise and established methodologies gained from advising hundreds of manufacturing companies worldwide, we trust DuPont can provide our company with solutions to help us achieve world-class safety standards.”

Wael Mansour, Project Manager at DuPont Sustainable Solutions Training Solutions, Middle East, added: “This is a challenging project, considering the wide range of activities within Aggreko. However, the full commitment and high level of enthusiasm across the organisation, from top management down to shop-level workforce, serve as key drivers that allow Aggreko to implement the right changes in order to achieve best results.”

DuPont Sustainable Solutions, which has been operating in the region for over 10 years, implements safety programmes as an owner/operator, the communiqué added.
