The Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturing Association (SOCMA) named the winners of its 2006 Performance Improvement Awards, recognizing manufacturing facilities that demonstrate outstanding commitment to continuous improvement in environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S). The awards will be given out at SOCMA's Annual Dinner on December 11, 2006.
SOCMA will honor the following three facilities with the Excellence Award: ISOCHEM, Inc., Lockport, NY, SACHEM, Inc., Cleburne, TX, and BASF Corp., Spartanburg, DC.
"On behalf of all SOCMA members, I thank these companies for their commitment to improved EHS&S performance and active engagement with their communities," said SOCMA president and chief executive officer, Joe Acker. "These companies set a high example for the industry and deserve to be commended."
A total of 42 SOCMA member facilities will be given the Achievement Award, which goes to facilities maintaining strong EHS&S programs. The names of these facilities can be found on SOCMA’s website at www.socma.org. Both awards promote continuous improvement in the areas of pollution prevention, process safety, employee health product stewardship, community awareness, and emergency response. The awards are sponsored by SOCMA’s ChemStewards program.
