Tristar Group joins the Middle East Gases Association (MEGA) to help promote safety and environmental care
Tristar Group, the integrated logistics services provider, is pleased to announce its membership of The Middle East Gases Association (MEGA) of which it will be the very first Category 4 member. Tristar will actively participate in three of MEGA’s working groups, namely, Transport, Safety and Environment.
Through its membership of MEGA, a safety and technically oriented non-profit organization, Tristar demonstrates its commitment to achieving the highest levels of safety and environmental care in handling of industrial gases.
Eugene Mayne, founder and Group CEO of Tristar, said: “We are delighted to have been admitted as a member of MEGA, and we look forward to collaborating with other businesses in the industry to improve technical standards and safety practices. We are committed to managing our business to the highest health, safety, environmental and compliance standards and relish the opportunity to work with other knowledgeable businesses in this space.”
MEGA, which is head quartered in Dubai, was established in 2010 with the aim of fostering the exchange of technical information in the handling of industrial gases through the development of documents with industry experts. It liaises closely with national authorities in the region to provide assistance with the preparation of laws and regulations via expert advice on production, transport, storage and applications of industrial, medical and food gases.
Roger Sayah, MEGA’s General Secretary said: “Since it was established, MEGA’s mission is to maintain the highest level of safety concern for the environment at work and in the community. We welcome Tristar’s membership of the group and anticipate that its expertise will be a valuable contribution to MEGA’s Working Group discussions.”
MEGA also aims to promote consistency and harmonization of Safety, Health, Environmental and technical standards throughout the industrial gases industry in the region.
Tristar’s KSA’s office has recently signed up Saudi Industrial Gas Co. ltd. (SIGAS) to transport liquid gases for two years, underpinning its status as a logistics provider of choice in the region. SIGAS is a member of the Linde Group which is a world leading supplier of industrial, process and specialty gases. Linde-SIGAS is the second biggest industrial gases company in the Kingdom.
Linde is also a customer in the UAE and Qatar which has recognized Tristar’s safety performance of achieving 8 million kilometers of safe driving for more than 10 years.
Tristar has world-class HSE management systems which serve as a benchmark for all activities throughout the business. Its stringent HSE performance standards help it meet and exceed its customer and statutory requirements.
