  • Require personnel to adhere to such standards and procedures at all times.
  • Ensure that safety and environmental hazards, associated with member activities, are identified, assessed and managed.
  • Support programs which minimize the impact of member’s products on the environment.
  • Communicate with employees, customers, the public and governments, in a timely fashion, on health, safety and environmental aspects of their products and operations.
  • Work with industry associations, government agencies and public groups to determine priorities and to participate in the development of practicable and scientifically sound legislation.
