Safety and Environmental Stewardship means recognizing our first accountability is to operate facilities and provide products which are safe and environmentally responsible. There is a constant focus on safeguarding the health of our employees, the environment, our customers and the communities in which we operate.
Solutia's focus in Environmental, Safety, Health and Security is one of continuous improvement driving toward an incident-free culture. An incident-free culture is an environment where injuries, even minor ones, are not viewed as acceptable and where we do everything possible to recognize and prevent them.
This culture is founded and sustained by a focus on basic fundamentals. At Solutia we categorize these fundamentals in 4 primary areas:
- Visible Leadership Commitment
- Active Employee Involvement
- Hazard Recognition and Control
- Employee Training and Development
These fundamentals are the framework that rests on a solid footing created by an emphasis on personal responsibility and accountability.
We measure and drive performance in these areas with leading indicators which are gathered and communicated to management and all employees on a regular basis. In addition, we measure and quantify our performance by the use of traditional lagging indicators.
As a global and industry-leading company, Solutia strives to create a culture of continuous improvement. We are dedicated to achieving and maintaining excellence and continually striving to be even better; and we believe in communicating these commitments with our employees, shareholders and the public.
