Honoring Safety Strides during #SafeandSoundWeek
It’s Safe and Sound Week. How are companies leading the way on safety?
In 2016, Afton Chemical Corporation launched a three-year initiative to overhaul its hazard communication data and associated databases for all of the products it manufactures, with a goal of providing customers, emergency responders, employees and other stakeholders access to current, robust product safety information on its products.
The result? By transparently providing hazard information and environmental, health and safety data for the products it manufactures, Afton’s customers can more fully assess risks and understand how to use its products safely.
