Specialty chemicals producer Quaker Chemical has bagged the RC14001:2015 standard certification from the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care initiative. Quaker is only the second ACC member company in the US to be awarded a 2015 version of the certification and has been awarded the certificate for its five production facilities in the US.

The RC14001:2015 standard certification challenges companies to demonstrate a commitment to improving their safety, health and environmental (SH&E) and security performance.

"Responsible Care certification reinforces the high value that Quaker places on the safety, health, and well-being of our associates, protection of the environment, and security of our facilities," CEO Michael Barry said. "By embracing a culture built around safety and environmental responsibility, we ask every single associate to be proactive and apply these elements to the way we actually work."

According to Quaker, all its main manufacturing facilities around the world are ISO14001 certified, and many of its main manufacturing sites outside of North America are OHSAS18001 certified.

"The addition of the RC14001 certification enhances Quaker's current efforts to enhance safety, and is a significant step in achieving its corporate social responsibility goals," the company said. (AR)
