Chemical Manufacturing & Safety

Utilizing industry programs such as ACC’s Responsible Care®, they go to great lengths to prevent incidents and protect their workers and neighbors. 


The chemical industry manufactures products that are vital to the everyday health and well-being of our nation, which is why the Department of Homeland Security designated the chemical industry as critical infrastructure.

Within months of the terrorist attacks of 9/11, ACC created a stringent, mandatory security program called the Responsible Care® Security Code.
