Equate organises training programme for emergencies

KUWAIT, April 23, 2018

Kuwait-based Equate Petrochemical Company, a global producer of petrochemicals, along with Kuwait Fire Service Directorate (KFSD) and the Ministry of Interior (MOI) recently organised a joint training programme to strengthen relations and adopt global best practices in addressing emergencies.

The partnership between Equate, KFSD and MOI has been growing over the past few years through a number of partnerships, said a statement.

This initiative comes as part of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) that was signed in 2016 to support efforts in relevant fields, it said.

The recent training programmes, which included a total of over 20 employees from the three organisations, were conducted over the course of two weeks by experts in municipal firefighting and fire investigation at KFSD’s facilities, then followed by two-weeks of training on vital industrial security at MOI’s training centre, it added.

Equate’s emergency services and security (ES&S) leader Abdulqader Al-Qabandi said: “We are committed to developing our employees’ skills on various and diverse levels.”

“Constantly organising and participating in fire safety training courses and workshops to keep everyone up-to-date and safe are things that we take very seriously due to the varying environments of our jobs,” he said.

“We pay great attention to sharing knowledge and expertise to ensure overall development and sustainability,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
