Spill Prevention and Response
In 2018, we continued to focus on our process-safety management and lessons-learned programs, resulting in zero significant spills to the environment.
We proactively conduct plant maintenance and inspections, train our employees on environmental management, and implement process-safety management (PSM) programs. Our primary goal is to prevent the loss of primary containment of substances that are harmful to human health, safety, and the environment.
In 2018, in line with our rigorous incident investigation process, we reviewed the controls in place against minor spill events, shared lessons learned from previous incidents with all of our manufacturing sites, and took appropriate preventive actions to address hazards that could potentially lead to more significant spills.
