Category: News Published: Monday, 23 July 2012

AOMG held its second successful technical workshop at Courtyard by Marriott in Bali, Indonesia from 16 - 17 July 2012 continuing its focus on improving HSE in members' plants.  There were 24 participants that included SHE Managers, Production Managers, Process Engineers, QC/QA Managers as well as General Managers and Executive Directors.

Mr Wong Fok Gee of PT Musim Mas led the session on process safety in fatty acid plants and Mr Abun Lie of PT Ecogreen led a similar session on fatty alcohol plants.  Mr Goh Eng Choor of Palm-Oleo Sdn Bhd led a session on liquid as well as solid by products sharing the ways in which these could be minimized.

Mr Vanit of Thai Oleochemicals discussed the importance of the Work Permit System whilst Encik Azhar of Pacific Oleochemicals spoke on Behavioural Based Safety.  Mr K S Qua shared tips on improving process safety communication with board members.  Sources of useful information were also shared.

Participants were treated to a BBQ dinner with a unique presentation at Tropical Bali Restaurant hosted by APOLIN.  Our thanks to APOLIN.

In summing up the workshop, Mr Goh Eng Choor who is the Chairman of the AOMG Technical Committee said that in exchanging best practices the oleochemical industry sector would benefit as a whole.  He would like to see such a healthy environment of openly sharing continue not only between companies but amongst the young and old.

Going forward participants made a number of suggestions for next year's workshop and these included a factory visit, communication skills, handling of hydrogen gas as well as a call for those who have not led sessions or participated previously to come forward.  It is likely that the country to host the 2013 workshop will be Malaysia.
