We inspect every critical step in our manufacturing processes and every vital piece of equipment in our plants, and we strive to protect everyone whose life is touched by our products on a daily basis–including those who make, transport, buy, use and handle our materials. Sites are regularly reviewed for goal performance and new goals are established on an annual basis to continually improve our operations. We strive for continual improvement of our manufacturing capabilities and people to improve the communities where we live and operate.
We believe that reporting EHSS information is part of our responsibility to respond to community concerns by allowing a better public understanding of our operations. We take pride in sharing our many efforts to provide a safe and healthy workplace and community.
As a part of our overall commitment to product stewardship we participate in a number of industry associations and sector groups to share information with the general public, our customers, suppliers, and authorities in numerous jurisdictions.
Our commitment to operational excellence extends beyond our manufacturing operations to our environmental policy. We continually seek to reduce our environmental footprint while striving to achieve a "balanced plant" - one where we completely convert all incoming raw materials to saleable products with the minimization of waste and by-product formation.
Chemical products provide many benefits to society, but they must be managed responsibly throughout their lifecycles to minimize any adverse effects. At SI Group, we work hard to ensure that our products are manufactured, stored, transported, used, disposed of, and recycled to safeguard the health and safety of the environment.
Consistent with our commitment to the principles of Responsible Care®, we support the development of responsible, science-based laws, regulations, standards, practices, and procedures that safeguard the community, workplace, and environment. SI Group welcomes the appropriate review by governments to maintain and enhance public acceptance of its operations and products. We actively participate in industry associations, research, and programs to enhance environmental safety policies. In addition, our product safety assessments are publicly available and cover topics such as basic hazards, risk, and risk management.
Our Technical Data Sheets (TDS) describes safe handling procedures for our products while our Technical Service Group can provide reference materials for safe product storage. Our detailed health and safety information is available on the applicable SI Group Safety Data Sheets (SDS).
We are serious about environmental and safety compliance. The distribution of accurate and reliable product documentation that satisfies global regulatory and compliance requirements is critical to product delivery to our global customers.
The requirements of REACH for products marketed in the European Union and country-by-country implementation of the Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labeling (GHS) impose new requirements for detailed, region-specific documentation.
SI Group has continued to invest in upgrades of our Safety Data Sheet (SDS) authoring system to support global regulatory compliance through the creation and maintenance of reliable hazard communication documentation.
Environmental regulations and consumer demand for eco-sensitive options has expanded the market for green products. With our unique R&D expertise and resources, SI Group can deliver sustainable solutions that help our customers comply with environmental regulations and adapt products and processes for an eco-sensitive marketplace.
