18 SOCMA Member Facilities Exceed ChemStewards Benchmarks

April 1, 2014

The Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA) reports that 18 member facilities are now exceeding key ChemStewards benchmarks, qualifying them for the program’s highest ranking, known as the Excellence Tier. To date, 10% of facilities participating in the environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S) program have qualified for this distinction
“We congratulate all 18 facilities on their hard work throughout the year to optimize their performance and achieve this ranking,” said ChemStewards managing director J. Holland Jordan, Ph.D. “SOCMA members are continuously striving for superior EHS&S performance and embrace the ideals of continuous improvement.”

ChemStewards is an industry-developed EHS&S program designed for the batch, custom and specialty chemical industry. It’s based on a three-tier system with key performance requirements per tier with increasing levels of difficulty.

Tier One is known as Fundamental, and Tier Two is Enhanced Performance—the standard tier for ChemStewards participants. To qualify for Excellence, or Tier Three, facilities must sign core principles, complete security requirements, meet specific metrics obligations and requirements, have at least one documented management review meeting and complete a third-party verification of management systems at the Enhanced Performance (Tier Two) level.

To maintain their ranking, facilities must sustain EHS&S performance metrics at or above the Excellence criteria, according to SOCMA.
