Ensuring the safety of Dow products in their intended applications through our product stewardship programs and compliance with requirements are the key elements of Dow’s Product Safety Program. You can learn more about our approach through our Product Safety Blueprint.
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.
