Safety is Our First Priority — Dow's Position
The Dow Chemical Company will not compromise on our commitment to security and safety nor will we concede our leadership position setting the standard for all others to follow. This is our business. Our commitment to the security and safety of our sites, products, and communities — where we live and work — has always been deeply embedded in our company’s culture and our business processes.
Without government mandate or regulation, Dow has decisively acted — building upon our strong foundation of safety and security — to permanently heighten our level of security and invest hundreds of millions of dollars in security and manufacturing safety upgrades globally. But, we never consider
our work done. We constantly assess the risks to facilities, supply
chain,and information systems.
While the primary responsibility for public security rests within the role of governments around the world, Dow is strongly committed to working with industry and governments wherever we operate to help address safety and security needs. We strongly support national legislation in the United States to establish uniform, risk-based performance standards and are driving industry efforts around the globe that will help bring all chemical manufacturers up to our standards.
