  • Thierry Ziegler
  • Global EHS Director
  • Bostik Group, France

I have joined the Arkema Group in July 2011 through the acquisition of the Resins Business of Total and I moved to the Direction Safety Environment Group in May 2012, after more than 25 years spent on the fields, through different jobs, from plant manager to managing director through industrial director, in different countries (UK, Germany, France) mainly in the chemical industry but as well in the steel, stainless and aluminium industry. In that case most of the time in France and in Asia.
A long experience of projects management from the design phase to the commissioning phase, and obviously a specific emphasis on Safety, Health and Environment issues.
In that particular field Industrial Safety, my experience is based on the 3 axis, technical, organization and behavioural approach. Arkema is implementing worldwide the Behaviour Based Safety System (BBS) which is a peer to peer observation with the aim to identify the safe act, safe gesture and to exchange on the at risk behaviour.
I am an internal AIMS (Arkema Integrated Management System) auditor and a SafeStart © trainer.
I have deployed such program during the last couple of years, being involved of the Safety Culture module development and deployment.
Last December 2016 I moved to the Adhesives business of Arkema, and became the Global HSE Director for the Bostik Group.
