Environment, Health & Safety
Dedicated to the Highest
Environment, Health, and Safety Standards
We are dedicated to the highest standards of health and safety practices and realize our corporate responsibility to the environment. Our goal is to establish an outstanding record of leadership and strong corporate citizenship. We come to work each day with a focus and dedication to work smart, work safe and take care of each other.
Our customers and neighboring communities can be assured that we have established environment, health, and safety (EHS) programs and that we are working to reduce the impact of our facilities and products on the global environment. At our manufacturing locations, we continue to look for ways to improve our processes through increased recycling, waste reduction, and energy savings. We are also working to secure International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 certifications at various locations. The certification process involves the identification of environmental aspects and impacts associated with our plants and the establishment of targets for continuous improvement.
Our activities are coordinated through an EHS Management System that has been audited and certified by a third-party registrar for meeting the requirements of the American Chemistry Council, the gold standard for the industry. The management system serves as the framework for GCP's global EHS activities.
Our main goal is having everyone work, think, and be safe. We have consistently achieved total injury rates well below the average for our industry. What the figures show is that GCP employees around the world make safety a priority each and every day.
Environment Health and Safety Policy
The Health and Safety of our employees and their families, our customers, and the communities in which we work, and the protection of the environment, are among GCP's most critical concerns. It is GCP policy to conduct business in compliance with company standards and all applicable health, safety, and environmental laws.
While safe behavior is ultimately the responsibility of each of us, GCP will provide a safe and healthful workplace and will ensure that safety and environmental issues are incorporated in the planning and execution of the company's business.
