Guliz Talay
EH&S Del Leader
Dow Benelux BV
Terneuzen, The Netherlands

“We were aiming that every facility should be capable of identifying two near misses per week. Guliz worked to create broad communication of the initiative, created a reporting tool, presented in forums to talk about the program and drove engagement. This resulted in many near misses being reported, and we have a company-leading frequency rate. However, her performance did not stop there. She went on to passionately demand and drive trend analysis, action identification and risk reduction. For example, we identified working at height as a knowledge gap with scaffolders. She initiated extended/repeat training with our two key scaffolding companies onsite.”
