mission de management de transition : Secure and perpetuate a Seveso site in an urban environment



Catherine is a mining engineer. She began her career in research. She quickly joined an oil company in risk management and site security in the EMEA zone and then moved on to the heavy chemicals industry. For the past two years, Catherine has been involved in political and operational support in risk management.

A medium-sized group, leader in its specialty sector (chemicals), present in 25 countries with 30 industrial sites, was forced to urgently review the control of industrial risks following a critical incident.

This historic site of the group, now surrounded by houses and schools, is threatened with closure by the administration (DRIRE).

Content of the mission

I immediately reopened the dialogue with the administration (DRIRE) and allowed to freeze the imminent threat of closure of one of the workshops.

I am working with all the site's functions to examine in detail the safety impacts of each process, while maintaining the site's productivity level.

Most of the processes are improved and secured, operators and management are involved and trained.

In 24 months, I have established a good level of security culture. The site, which was threatened with closure, is now sustainable.
