The award aims to promote collaboration across the industry and highlight the work of companies demonstrating commitment to safety practices.

We feel the award is a testament to our commitment to maintaining the highest operational safety standards across our network.

“We are proud of our advanced process safety programs at our West Deptford, NJ facility, which prioritize employee and environmental safety during all operations. The recent expansion at our Edinburgh, UK facility has also allowed us to build on this aspect of the business, adding to our existing capabilities and enhancing our commitment to safety – especially concerning the handling of HPAPIs.
