Health & Safety

Zeochem recognizes that excellence in environmental and health & safety performance is essential for a successful business. We are committed to providing a work environment that promotes health and the highest level of safety for all our employees, visitors and contractors. We recognize the importance of environmental stewardship and conserving resources for future generations.

An Environmentally Conscious Company

We are focused on environmental sustainability, reducing CO2 and conducting business in a manner that ensures a safe and secure environment for customers, employees, associates and communities. This is achieved by maintaining an Environmental Management System (EMS) that is continuously improving. This commitment includes the following objectives:

  • Complying with environmental laws and policies on local, national and global levels
  • Promoting the prevention of pollution
  • Conserving natural resources
  • Recycling materials
  • Reducing waste
  • Adhering to appropriate environmental objectives

Some examples of our commitment to the environment include mother liquor recycling, product waste reduction, drum recycling, LED replacement lighting, continuous wastewater treatment, paper and aluminum recycling, electronic documentation and archiving, gravity-fed processes to reduce energy consumption, and video conferencing when possible to minimize our carbon footprint. In addition, for some product lines, unpainted drums are used.

Safety

We are committed to a strong safety program that protects our staff, property and the public. Commitment to health and safety is an integral part of who we are. Management requires all employees to participate in our safety program and provides proper equipment, training and procedures. Employees are responsible for following all procedures, working safely and, wherever possible, improving safety measures. An injury and accident-free workplace is our goal. This is accomplished by adhering to the safety policy and conforming to all governmental safety regulations.
