Safety, Health & Development

Our Drive to Zero initiative reflects our ultimate goal to achieve zero injuries worldwide. We are proud of our safety and health performance progress and have one of the lowest injury rates when compared to global chemical manufacturing organizations.

We are continually working to reduce the number of incidents that occur by emphasizing key life safety standards such as self-assessment, lock out tag out, fall protection and confined space entry. All of our sites review compliance with these and other safety, health and environmental (SH&E) standards on an annual basis and implement any necessary changes through corrective action plans.

Additionally, we promote our commitment to SH&E by celebrating Global Safety Day. This annual event encourages all of our sites to devote a full day to discussing topics such as wellness, awareness training and hazard recognition. Our 2016 Safety Day represented the ninth consecutive year that we have hosted special events across the organization to celebrate our safety accomplishments and to discuss how we can improve our performance.
