Styron: Responsible Care Certification
Styron LLC, Berwyn, USA, achieved Responsible Care certification, following the completion of a third-party audit of the company’s environmental, health, safety and security (EH&S) management systems in August.
The Responsible Care Management System (RCMS) certification, places Styron’s Environment, Health and Safety program among the top echelon of chemical companies. Responsible Care certification, administered by the American Chemistry Council (ACC), designates an international standard used by leading companies in the chemical industry around the world.
The RCMS process requires mandatory certification by an independent, accredited auditor, renewed every three years. The audit lasts one week and must include at least one U.S. manufacturing site (Allyn’s Point, Connecticut) and a review of Styron’s corporate EH&S practices, policies and programs. The RCMS framework is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, and focuses on the following areas: community awareness and emergency response; security; distribution; employee health and safety; pollution prevention; process safety; and product safety.
