The Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates (SOCMA) kicks off March as Manufacturing Excellence Month by highlighting Performance Improvement Award winners and showcasing specialty chemical capabilities.
“Safety is the number one priority for companies across the specialty and fine chemical industry, and through our Manufacturing Excellence Month we have an opportunity to learn from these award-winning companies and share best practices on how they are continuing to progress and excel in environmental, health, safety and security at their facilities,” says Joe Dettinger, senior director, technical and safety, SOCMA.
Each Tuesday throughout March, SOCMA will facilitate 50-minute conversations with the 2020 Performance Improvement Award winners, focusing on ChemStewards core standards: stakeholder communications, product stewardship, EHS&S, employee training, resource management and waste minimization, educational outreach and sustainability.
“As part of these roundtables, not only will we discuss each company’s specific program and safety standards, but also explore what each organization has implemented for continuous improvement and how they have transformed safety as a team-based approach,” says Dettinger.
