Mark Appleyard new HSSEQ Manager and Business Advisor at RSA-TALKE

Mark Appleyard was appointed HSSEQ Manager and Business Advisor for RSA-TALKE in Dubai at the beginning of the year. Appleyard, 58, has been involved in chemical logistics throughout his career with leading chemicals and fuels logistics 3PL organizations in the UK. His former roles included Regional Business Director Middle East & Africa (Chemical Sector) for Agility in Abu Dhabi. Most recently, he held the position of Head of Logistics Middle East for Camelot Management Consultants.

“We are pleased to have Mark Appleyard on board. He is an extremely experienced chemical logistics specialist who is particularly focussed on HSSEQ”, states Richard Heath, Director Middle East & USA for TALKE. “With Mark on our team, we will continue to develop our high standards in our Gulf region sites and, step by step, expand our service portfolio.”

RSA-TALKE has played a pioneering role in the chemical and petrochemical sector and, in 2015, conducted one of the pilot assessments for the GPCA’s Gulf SQAS initiative, supporting the effort to establish this standard in the GCC. The company would like to help set a benchmark for health, safety, security, environment and quality (HSSEQ) in chemical logistics in the Gulf region, since, currently, sufficient legal guidelines only partially exist in this area.

At the same time, Mark Appleyard will continue as Leader of the Dangerous Goods Road Transport Regulations Taskforce for the GPCA, working on developing the case for the implementation of ADR in the Gulf region.
