The Mexichem Fluor team celebrating award success
Mexichem Fluor won the award for Responsible Care for Process Safety Leadership at the Chemical Industry Awards 2019.

The Runcorn plant was recognised for its stringent safety processes, highly trained team and above and beyond policies including fatigue management, continued learning support and regular thorough inspections.
This year, the Mexichem site was also credited with an exemplary report from the Health and Safety Executive inspector, due to the plant’s improved asset integrity monitoring and management systems.

Tipu Salahuddin, downstream operations director at Mexichem Fluor, said: “We understand the critical importance of continuously improving safety management systems whilst reinforcing strict guidelines and site culture. This considered approach ensures site safety and security are always paramount.  

“This is a fantastic achievement for UK operations and goes a long way to recognising each and every member of our team, who has worked tirelessly to ensure our systems and processes go above and beyond industry guidelines.”
