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. Since 9/11/2001, ACC members have invested heavily under the Security Code to further enhance site, transportation, and cyber security at their facilities. The Security Code has become a gold standard for the industry and served as a model for regulatory programs.
