YEC site achieved 10-year safety milestone

On July 6, 2016, Nanjing Yangzi Eastman Chemical Ltd. (YEC), Eastman’s joint venture with SINOPEC Yangzi Petrochemical Limited Company, marked 10 years (3,655 days) without Days Away from Work (DAW) injuries and Recordable Incidents.

This achievement, made through YEC's on-going commitment to safety and its well-established safety strategy, system and processes, is a significant safety milestone in the site’s history. In addition to this, YEC has gained all employee participation and management commitment under the guidance of Eastman leadership team and support from the Health, Safety, Environment and Security (HSES) team. 

Max Ma and Hong Xianrong, General Manager and Deputy General Manager of YEC, expressed their pride in this achievement: “Each of our employees are aware that every day is just a starting point for safety and there is no end for HSES efforts. We will continue our safety journey toward achieving zero incidents.”

To further raise the safety standard at the site, YEC always encourages the reporting of near misses and takes corresponding measures for continuous improvement in personal and process safety. Self-inspections are conducted regularly to ensure the site complies with laws and standards. Every summer, YEC holds a series of hundred-day safety activities including fire drills, employees training in occupational health and post emergency management, among others. All of these prove YEC's awareness and dedication to safety.
