Chemicals: Safety at the forefront of innovation
Safety management in the chemicals industry brings a unique set of circumstances and challenges. Chemical exposures can range from the large-scale risks of mass-manufacturing or chemical storage to an accidental inhalation of a dust, vapor or odorless, colorless gas; an immediate response to a trip and fall accident on the job, or managing the delayed and widespread effects of a food or water contamination. As a three trillion dollar contributor to the global economy, industrial and household consumers alike rely upon the chemicals industry. For an industry that is at its heart about people, the safety of employees, consumers and communities is of paramount importance. We partner with the world’s leading chemical organizations to anticipate, isolate and mitigate safety concerns and create strong, productive and sustainable organizational cultures.
