SOCMA Recognizes Company’s Commitment to Improving Environmental, Health, Safety & Security
FORT MILL – Nation Ford Chemical (NFC) is pleased to announce it has been recognized for exemplary efforts in improving its environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) by the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA), the leading trade association representing specialty chemical manufacturers.
NFC participates in SOCMA’s ChemStewards® program, which encourages companies to operate their facilities in an environment that guarantees safety and environmental compliance to all stakeholders.
NFC accepted a Bronze Performance Improvement Award at SOCMA’s 95th Annual Dinner on December 5 in New York City. This is the 8th year NFC has received an award, including seven silver awards. Jay Dickson accepted the award on behalf of the company at the awards dinner.
Nation Ford Chemical was recognized for its successful efforts around EHS&S auditing and training. A new program was implemented to improve our internal EHS auditing system so that every key safety procedure is audited by a different member of management on a monthly basis. We have also implemented a policy to increase the number of mock safety drills providing employees more on the job response training.
“We are extremely proud of the hard work our employees have done on our EHS&S program. This award reflects our commitment to constant improvement for our products, our workers and our neighbors in the community,” said President, Jay Dickson.
“Congratulations to Nation Ford Chemical and its employees on this outstanding achievement,” said SOCMA President and CEO Jennifer Abril. “As specialty chemical manufacturers, it is incumbent upon companies to be good environmental stewards and create a culture at their facilities that will ensure the safety and security of their employees and community in which they live. NFC has gone above and beyond to demonstrate its commitment to improving EHS&S efforts through participation in the ChemStewards Performance Improvement Program. Congratulations on a job well done.”
