Environment, Health and Safety Management

We operate our business with three clear objectives:  no one hurt, nothing out of place, and no harm from our products. These Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) goals, while ambitious, inform the key performance indicators by which we measure our progress toward Operating Excellence and effectively managing health, safety, and environmental risks.

No One Hurt

Nothing Out of Place

No Harm From our Products - 
before, during and after manufacture

Safety is a core value at Grace. Our performance against our goal of no one hurt is tracked globally using the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration's (OSHA) total recordable incident rate as well as by internal, leading indicators of risk.

​We track our performance against our goal of nothing out of place using the American Petroleum Industry (API) RP-754 Process Safety Performance Indicators as well as by internal, leading indicators of risk posed by out-of-place process material.

​In establishing our goal of no harm from our products, we focus on managing risks inherent in our supply chain, on proper materials management, classification and labeling as appropriate during manufacturing and distribution process, and robust hazard communication protocols to help customers and downstream users adopt management controls.
