DuPont China recently sponsored a safety seminar in Beijing that was organized by the China State Administration of Work Safety for more than 120 government officials, plant leaders and safety managers in the country's chemical, petrochemical and light manufacturing industries.

At the event, several DuPont leaders -- including DuPont Asia Pacific President D.S. Kim and DuPont SHE Asia Pacific Director Tim Kemp -- spoke about the company's commitment to safety, health and the environment, as well as its efforts to promote Responsible Care©.

For years, the chemical industry has used a framework known as Responsible Care© to voluntarily improve health, safety and environmental performance worldwide and foster open communication with the public. The program is sponsored by the American Chemistry Council, which represents much of the U.S. chemical industry, and has been adopted in other regions of the world. However, Responsible Care© is relatively new in China.

In his speech, D.S. (pictured) explained that Responsible Care© affects virtually every component of a business. Discussing the relevance of safety to the Chinese economy, D.S. said: "For the Chinese economy to grow, industry must identify what steps are essential for manufacturing excellence while, at the same time, facilitating strong earnings for shareholders. Responsible Care© can help China upgrade itself to a world-class manufacturing powerhouse."

Representatives from DuPont Safety Resources, DuPont Advanced Fiber Systems and DuPont™ Tyvek© also made presentations at the seminar, highlighting the years of experience and know-how DuPont possesses in areas such as workplace safety and protective apparel.

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to learn about the safety experiences that DuPont has accumulated over its almost 200 years of history," said Wang Haijun, director of Department Two of Work Safety Supervision, State Administration of Work Safety. "By learning what DuPont has done in this field, we've found a big gap between our local practices and DuPont. DuPont has pointed out a very clear direction for us."
