Huntsman Corp. was honored recently by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) with six Responsible Care® Facility Safety Awards in recognition of the company’s achievements in employee health and safety performance during 2019. Certificates of Honor recognize facilities that experienced zero fatalities, zero cases resulting in days away from work, and zero job transfer or restriction cases among employees, according to current Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines. Huntsman’s manufacturing sites in McIntosh, Ala., and Freeport, Texas, earned Certificates of Honor.
Certificates of Excellence recognize the same among both employees and contractors. Huntsman’s R&D locations in The Woodlands, Texas, and Auburn Hills, Mich., as well as production sites in East Lansing, Mich., and Charlotte, N.C., received Certificates of Excellence.
“Huntsman is, of course, pleased to receive such high honors from the ACC and beyond proud of our associates and contractors who dedicate themselves to working safely every day,” said Ron Gerrard, senior vice president of Environmental, Health and Safety and Manufacturing Excellence. “It is their commitment to safety that contributed to this recognition and the excellent progress we have made over many years reducing our injury rate, in line with other ACC Responsible Care® companies, to nearly four times lower than the latest U.S. chemical industry average.”
