Monument Chemical expanded their global footprint by acquiring a facility in Antwerp, Belgium in 2010. Having been using different tools for different processes; activities such as keeping track, maintaining/upgrading them and cross-platform working became costly and time-consuming.

Soon after implementing and being trained on pmOperation’s Incident and Audits modules as part of the Safety Management practice, Monument Chemical decided to implement all modules to have a full comprehensive EHS IT solution in place.

The overhaul is now happening across all their plants, internationally and simultaneously. The objective is to bring complete visibility across all their plants using a single platform, accessible at anytime from anywhere. Today, more than 500 users across all sites use various modules of pmOperation.

Solvay is a leading international chemical group. Its Antwerp plant is in charge of manufacturing chlorine, sodium hydroxide and hydrogen by electrolysing sodium chloride solution. This is a process which requires a high attention to safety processes.

In order to remain compliant to European safety standards and practices, Solvay decided to implement pmOperation’s Incidents module, followed by the Audits module. It is now in the process of implementing the Management of Change Module.

With each module rolling out in 6 to 8 weeks, and continuous training, the Solvay site in Antwerp gives access to the pmOperation modules to over 150 users. As the modules are easily configurable and adaptable, Solvay decided to implement a “winners” program. This “winners” program allows every single user to propose process improvements which optimize and improve workflows, winners of the program are recognized for their contribution.

EVAL, a Kuraray established fully-owned subsidiary in Antwerp, Belgium, is in charge for the production and sales of its EVAL™ EVOH barrier resins in the Europe-Middle East-Africa region. pmOperation has been part of EVAL’s business processes for over a decade. Starting in 2005, with the initial objective of dramatically increasing the safety of their employees through the right follow ups of all actions, the Incidents Module was implemented.

Today, EVAL runs a fully integrated EHS IT system across all their departments with over 180 users, using 9 of the 10 modules pmOperation has to offer. All practices of their ESH Management system, from health to process management, run smoothly and no incidents have happened to any employee on their daily operations.

Continuous support from TenForce engineers and yearly training sessions are also part of the essence at EVAL.

The core business of LANXESS is the development, manufacturing and marketing of plastics, rubber, intermediates and specialty chemicals. Their Antwerp based chemical plants specialize in rubber and glass fibre.

After the success of pmOperation’s Incidents module, which was implemented in 2013, LANXESS decided to move forward with the expansion of their Safety Management practice. Today, 4 modules, Incidents, Audits, Permits & Isolation and Management of Change have been fully integrated into their daily operations systems ensuring complete safety and allowing 880 users across 2 sites to have full access to the necessary tools.
