“One Step Ahead” goes to Accra: ISOPA shares best practices in Ghana

After Tanzania and the United Arab Emirates, next stop was Ghana!

On 26 November, ISOPA organised its bi-annual “One Step Ahead” conference in Accra. Once more, the audience reflected the diversity of the chemical and its value chain.


The 36 participants came from Ghana, Nigeria, and Liberia and represented foamers, distributors, as well as local representatives of ISOPA member companies, including the regional Managing Directors of DOW and BASF. Handling drums, choosing available PPE, and of course, handling of diisocyanates including emergency guidelines were amongst the important topics addressed.


“Product stewardship is of vital importance for ISOPA. By elevating safety standards in the industry, we can ensure the highest quality of polyurethane products throughout the value chain while reducing the potential impact on human health and the environment,” said Els Van Eetvelde, Chair of ISOPA’s One Step Ahead group.

The success of the Accra workshop only confirms that.
