Environment, Health and Safety

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.

ISO Certified 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. We are dedicated to the highest standards of health and safety practicesAt 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. We have certified sites in Spain, United Arab Emirates, Germany and United Kingdom, with additional sites currently undergoing the process.

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 Grace'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 the chemical industry. What the figures show is that Grace employees around the world make safety a priority each and every day.
