SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT

Each day, we’re committed to conducting business with respect for the environment and the health and safety of our employees, customers, suppliers and the public.

The prevention of work-related injuries and illnesses is Americhem's number one business objective. Our approach is a collaborative effort between management and employees to achieve optimal safety in our work environment, focusing on:

  • Ongoing health and safety education and training for all employees
  • On-site Safety Committees consisting of both management and employee representatives at each location
  • Zero incident safety programs that celebrate successes and recognize employee commitment
  • Plants, equipment and processes that are engineered to be safe from the start
  • Strict enforcement of all safety and health laws, rules and regulations
  • Active involvement in nationally recognized safety organizations

Environmental responsibility is an integral element in Americhem's Company Principles. Our dedication has resulted in numerous successful programs to reduce waste stream and energy usage. Our ongoing objectives include:

  • Utilizing our expertise in new product development to fuel the engineering of greener products
  • Developing more efficient end-to-end supply chains for less waste
  • Continually improving energy efficiencies in plants and offices
  • Implementing recycling programs for everything from drums and scrap metal to wood pallets
  • Planning extensively for spill containment and hazardous waste disposal
  • Ensuring all global regulatory and reporting requirements are met both within the US and abroad
