Dow Employees Apply Chemical Risk Policy
Dow employees consistently apply this policy to the identification and management of chemical risks to ensure product safety.
While chemical products provide many benefits to society, they must also be managed in a responsible way to minimize any adverse effects on humans and the environment.
Dow employees take this responsibility very seriously working hard to ensure that Dow's products are manufactured, stored, transported, used, disposed and recycled in a manner that shows high regard for human health, safety and environmental stewardship.
As a company committed to the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care® initiative and the Global Chemicals Management Policy, Dow measures its progress against two product-related metrics, demonstrating:
- A documented process for characterizing and managing product risk, and a summary of the process that is available to the public
- A process to communicate the results of the risk characterization and management process in an effort to facilitate public knowledge
These measures are designed to demonstrate the chemical industry's commitment to the safe management of chemicals throughout their life cycle and going above and beyond government requirements.
Dow's progress against these metrics is measured and tracked as a part of its Responsible Care Management System®, and reported annually to the American Chemistry Council, which makes its members' performance publicly available.
