In 2020, 21 Trinseo manufacturing teams and 10 R&D groups— encompassing 1,439 individual recipients —earned the prestigious “Triple Zero Award,” recognizing that their work groups had zero recordable injuries (including employees and contractors), zero reportable spills, and zero process safety incidents.

Trinseo believes in continuously improving EH&S performance, with the ultimate goal of zero injuries, spills, and process safety incidents in all of our facilities every year.

“Even amidst the challenges presented in 2020 due to COVID-19, one constant that remained was our team’s commitment to safety. Everyone has a sense of accountability for their safety, as well as the safety of their colleagues and the communities in which we work,” said Jason Scott, Global EH&S Director. “Meeting or exceeding the highest standards of environmental and safety performance is a value that’s deeply held by our people.
