Safety, Health and Environment
Protecting the environment, and the health and safety of our employees, customers and the communities in which we live and work are among Nalco's highest priorities. The 2011 Ecolab Sustainability Report contains information on how Ecolab and Nalco are making strides toward our vision of helping provide the world with clean water, safe food, abundant energy and healthy environments. It includes both how we are helping our customers achieve their sustainability goals and our progress in reducing our environmental footprint.
Nalco has established a Safety, Health and Environment (SH&E) Management System that must be understood, shared and practiced by every Nalco employee and contractor. This system plays a vital role in identifying and successfully managing SH&E issues, including processes for measuring, reviewing and improving our performance. Implementation of the SH&E Management System at numerous field and manufacturing locations, as well as corporate headquarters, has been certified by Responsible Care® and ISO standards.
Nalco is committed to Responsible Care® a global, voluntary initiative by the chemical industry to improve our safety, health and environmental performance.
