Multisol, a Brenntag Group company has reached a milestone achievement – in April this year the company celebrated a decade without a lost work-day accident (LWDA) at its flagship Manchester site.
This notable 10-year achievement is all the more impressive given that the multi-functional site in Irlam incorporates a variety of mixed industrial and processing activities as well as being a lower tier CoMAH site. These activities include: advanced manufacturing, blending, packaging, storage and laboratory facilities which offers a complete spectrum of services. These key activities are all contained within a safe and highly efficient single location.
The company’s outstanding Health & Safety record reflects Multisol’s commitment to upholding and operating to the highest standards of quality, professionalism, safety, health and environmental management. Further testament to the company’s obligation to health and safety is reflected in its voluntary participation in the ‘Responsible Care Initiative’ of chemical distributors.
Darren Copson, Irlam’s site manager, praised his team, “Congratulations and thanks must go to all the team at Irlam, both in the offices and out on the plant. Maintaining the focus on safety whilst raising awareness in all day-to-day activities is our paramount consideration and this impressive LDWA record is testament to our successful approach.”
Copson went on to praise the dedication of his colleagues: “Everyone here has engaged with the safety requirements put in place on site, from both a practical and behavioural perspective. This has included periods such as site improvements and site developments where more stringent measures are generally necessary. The focus on safety was and will always continue to be the basis on which we pride ourselves to achieve a successful next decade.”
Multisol, part of the Brenntag Lubricants business, is an active member of the UKLA (United Kingdom Lubricants Association), CBA (Chemical Business Association), VLS (Verification of Lubricant Specifications) & UEIL (the Union of the European Lubricants Industry).
