OSHA, Dow Chemical Renew Alliance

OSHA and The Dow Chemical Company have renewed their alliance, saying they will continue to focus on advancing a culture of prevention of safety and health hazards for the nation's working men and women. OSHA and Dow will jointly promote the case for safer, healthier workplaces by sharing proven practices and technical knowledge in areas such as process safety management, safety and health management systems, emergency preparedness, and employee wellness programs, they said.

"The renewal of this Alliance with The Dow Chemical Company is more good news for the safety and health of our nation's employees," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. "The ideas shared by Dow and OSHA in the past have helped to identify and prevent occupational hazards, and we are eagerly anticipating more success ahead."

Through the alliance, Dow has completed three case studies--summarized in the slide presentation Overview of OSHA and The Dow Chemical Case Studies--that illustrate the practical benefits of an effective occupational safety and health program. Dow representatives serve on the editorial board for OSHA's Ammonia Refrigeration eTool, as well as the editorial boards of several OSHA Safety and Health Topics Pages, including Process Safety Management, Ammonia Refrigeration, Isocyanates, and Chemical Reactivity Hazards.

"Dow's dedication to exceptional safety and health performance is part of Dow's DNA and culture, and our 2015 Sustainability Goals and our 'Vision of Zero' exemplify our commitment," said Neil Hawkins, Dow's vice president of Sustainability. "Collaborating with OSHA to share our experiences and knowledge creates a mutually beneficial program that helps leverage our expertise to others. We are very pleased and gratified to renew our Alliance."

Dow is a leading provider of chemical, plastic, and agricultural products and services to many consumer markets. The company and its approximately 42,000 employees serve customers in more than 175 countries and in a wide range of markets including food, transportation, health and medicine, personal and home care, and building and construction, among others.
