OMNOVA Facilities Receive ACC Certificates of Excellence

OMNOVA Solutions’ Global Technology Center in Akron, Ohio, and specialty chemicals facilities in Green Bay, WI; Fitchburg, MA; and Calhoun, GA, were recognized with “Certificates of Excellence” by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) for their safety achievements in 2011.

The awards were presented in recognition of each location’s outstanding safety results as part of their respective Responsible Care® programs throughout the past year. This is the highest certificate awarded to individual facilities by the ACC and is bestowed upon those that complete a year with no Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable injuries or illnesses that result in days away from work, restricted workdays or job transfers.

“This is a testament to the safety culture our employees and leadership teams have accepted and driven at these facilities,” said Bob Doerr, director of Safety, Health and Security for OMNOVA. “Safety is one of our core values as a company, which means we’re always striving for a better, safer way to conduct our operations. We communicate this message from the top down, working to ensure all of our employees and those we do business with go home without incident or injury at the end of the day.”
