Leadership is highly engaged in EH&S activities, setting the right tone, maintaining high expectations, and recognizing positive EH&S results. For example, each biweekly meeting of the Trinseo Leadership Team begins with a report on EH&S performance. Senior leadership is actively involved in the reporting and investigation of every reportable safety incident, as well as giving recognition awards for those work groups with excellent EH&S records.
Trinseo executive leadership sets stretch targets each year for improving EH&S/Responsible Care® performance around three key metrics: safety incidents (injuries and illnesses), incidents of loss of primary containment (spills and leaks), and process safety incidents (including fires and explosions).
Established each January, the annual EH&S targets, along with financial targets, are measured throughout the year and reported in quarterly updates to employees, as well as on Trinseo’s Intranet.
For every incident, Trinseo conducts a thorough root-cause analysis, takes corrective action when needed, and shares learnings globally to improve performance. It’s this approach, along with a comprehensive set of company standards, management systems and an audit program, that has enabled Trinseo to outperform the industry in these areas
