In 2016, three Trinseo U.S. manufacturing facilities — the latex binder plants in Dalton, Georgia and Midland, Michigan, and the plastics plant in Midland — received the Responsible Care® Facility Certificate of Excellence Award from the American Chemistry Council (ACC). The Certificate of Excellence is the highest safety award offered by the ACC, and is presented to ACC member companies based on their achievements in employee health and safety. It is contingent on meeting top-tier safety performance requirements consisting of zero fatalities, zero injuries resulting in days away from work, and zero injuries resulting in a job transfer or restricted work. 2016 was the second year in a row that all three Trinseo U.S. facilities received this award.
Responsible Care® is a registered service mark of the American Chemistry Council in the United States.
Since October 29, 1994, Trinseo’s plant in Ulsan, South Korea has been accident-free. In 2016, this remarkable achievement was recognized by the Korean government.
