Our plant achievements and recognition
Managing our activities as a responsible market leader
In 2020, we acknowledged a “double zero” safety record at its combined plant’s R&D centers and headquarters around the world. This achievement signified one full year with zero safety incidents in two Company categories: no recordable injuries and no major process safety events.
We attained this accomplishment thanks to a strong commitment to its continuous improvement program as part of its corporate social responsibility business model.
Both of our US plants achieved the U.S. Occupation Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) “Star” status under the Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) in 2019.
We are extremely grateful to our teams for their dedication to a culture of workplace safety. Their commitment has allowed us to reach the highest level of safety in our industry – a standard that is important not only to our team members, but to our customers and partners around the world.
