Protection of the Environment, Conservation of our Natural Resources, and Preservation of our Employees' Health & Safety in the diverse occupational settings of our Workplaces

From our Corporate Strategic Policies to our Tactical and Operational business practices, our employees' health and safety is paramount in everything we do, just as we strive everyday to protect the safety of our products and thereby that of our end-users and consumers, medical practitioners and patients. Our facilities have active and engaged EHS Committees that involve employee participation from all angles of our business to contribute to the continuous improvement of our workplace from an EHS standpoint.

Our Site EHS Committees are composed of cross-functional members from Management, Production, Engineering, Maintenance, New Product Development, Analytical Chemistry, Microbiology, Shipping & Receiving, Quality Assurance/Control, Human Resources, and Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS). The EHS Committees meet regularly to review and discuss local EHS affairs impacting operations, review accidents, incidents, injuries, illnesses, near misses, regulatory developments, and suggestions, concerns, and corrective actions to be taken to address any outstanding issues.
