HEALTH & SAFETY
We Are Serious About Safety
As part of the Univar Network, safety is our first priority at Magnablend; it’s both the starting point and foundation for all aspects of our business. Safe production, transport and storage of products, in addition to safe operational practices and safe working conditions, enable us to protect our employees, customers, suppliers and the environment.
Being a critical component of a world-leading chemical distribution company, requires a dedicated commitment to safety from every member of our team. We are proud of the Univar safety record, and we continue to place daily emphasis on our company-wide Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) policy so that safety remains paramount for everyone.
Following the lead of Univar, Magnablend employs several methods for incorporating safety into our day-to-day operations. First, we adhere to all laws, regulations and standards that govern our operations throughout the world. We constantly seek to improve our processes, and sharpen our recognition, evaluation and control of hazards. Second, we train and re-train our people to make safety a priority as they carry out their roles and responsibilities.
Responsible Care® is the chemical industry’s global initiative in which companies work together, through their national associations, to continuously improve their EHS performance.
Magnablend and Univar adhere to the guiding principles of Responsible Care, which are:
- Adherence to legal requirements
- Management of risk
- Maintenance of policies and documentation
- Provision of information
- Emergency response
- Commitment to ongoing improvements
- Community interaction
