Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S)
We are proud of our culture of safety and compliance. Our nimble business structure allows us to make quick decisions to meet the changing needs of our diverse, global customers. With our President/CEO leading/presiding, our Safety Council has reduced our TRIR from over 4.0 to 0.57 over the past six years. On a monthly call, our business units share information, best practices and technology to benefit the greater good of the company. Every employee is accountable to create and maintain a safe workplace, and daily Gemba walks, safety improvement suggestions, and implementation of Operational Excellence standard work practices create continuous improvement across all facilities.
We are committed not only to following all applicable environmental laws, but also to making improvements that benefit both our business and the communities where we work and live. We are committed to being a good corporate citizen in all communities worldwide where we have business activities. As part of this commitment, we strive to manage our business in a way that reduces our carbon footprint, maximizes recycling and energy conservation efforts, conserves natural resources and preserves the environment. Continual focus on creative chemical usage and ‘green’ operational improvements enhance our culture of continuous improvement.
