With 14 industrial sites, our client is a European leader in the industry of fertilizer products and derivatives. They started a major business and organizational transformation to accelerate growth and add greater value to customers, shareholders and employees; placing EHS as a key pillar of the entire transformation journey.

The main challenge was to reduce the number of accidents and their environmental impact while operating with a consistent and efficient Safety Management System. The Group aims to optimize processes, reduce administrative workload and embrace diversity in their management systems. To meet these objectives, key safety routines and management processes were digitalized to reinforce best practices, improve efficiency and bring digital to all employees, from management to shop floor.

dss+ co-developed a multiyear work plan, starting with a cultural assessment to understand the baseline situation and needs, and followed by workstreams comprising leadership, workplace and process safety, and enabled digitally. Digitization was done through the implementation of dss+ Transform™: an intuitive digital platform that combines all the benefits of digitization with dss+ long standing experience in Operational Risk Management.

“dss+ ability to bring different areas of the company together to deliver the outcomes they have set to achieve is highly positive”
