Responsible Care

The OMNOVA Solutions has a longstanding commitment to safety, health, the environment and overall security. Our values, policies and procedures are aimed at: compliance with both internal and external standards; protection of our employees, the environment and communities where we operate; and the continuous improvement of those processes.

With its focus on safe chemical management, the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care® program has been recognized as one of the most successful initiatives developed by the chemical industry. Its principles and goals are far-reaching, touching nearly every aspect of chemical development, manufacturing, transportation, use and disposal. Companies that commit to Responsible Care® principles must demonstrate continuous progress toward achieving these goals:

  • Improved chemical processes
  • Enhanced practices and procedures
  • Safe production, transportation, use and disposal of materials
  • Reduction of wastes, injuries, incidents and emissions
  • Thorough analyses and reduction of security risks
  • Enhanced customer relations and service
  • Increased communication with the public

OMNOVA's Safety, Health, Environmental & Security Policies, our mission and vision statements and our Company values, support and guide OMNOVA Solutions on its journey as a Responsible Care® organization. It is OMNOVA's Company policy to operate our facilities and conduct our business activities in a manner that protects the safety and health of our employees and preserves and protects the environment...not only as a matter of compliance, but because it’s the right way to do business.
