American Chemistry Council Launches Product Safety Campaign with Responsible Care Code
ACC has also developed a new Responsible Care Process Safety Code to expand and strengthen safe operations throughout the chemical manufacturing process. Companies identify and prioritize the hazards and risks of their processes and promote systems to manage, mitigate and share information about these risks. Implementation of this Code is also mandatory for ACC member companies.
The announcement was made at the 2013 Responsible Care Conference and Expo, where industry leaders from across the country are gathering to discuss the latest developments in product safety and the future of the chemical industry.
Through Responsible Care, ACC members are required to report environment, health, safety and security performance data annually. Data are posted on a public website, which allows the public to see individual company data and compare it to other companies.
