PRODUCT SAFETY & STEWARDSHIP


Product Safety

As part of AmSty’s commitment to the American Chemistry Council (ACC) Responsible Care® Product Safety Code, our Product Stewardship program is committed to ensuring the environmental, health, and safety of our products through their entire lifecycle beginning at inception through manufacture, transportation/distribution, use, recycling, and disposal.  At AmSty, Product Stewardship is a part of the Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) function. 

The Product Safety Code requirements are met through our Operational Excellence Management System and Product Safety Management Standard. Each employee at AmSty has a responsibility in product safety and stewardship.  Multi-functional teams including Technical Service & Development, Manufacturing, Supply Chain/Logistics, and Customer Service implement standards and processes to ensure that EH&S priorities are considered.  

 

Based upon the hazard and exposure risk profile of a product, the appropriate measures are taken to ensure that product safety is achieved. Through the value chain of our products, value chain partners such as suppliers, distributors, transportation providers, and customers are key to communicating product information to manage and continually improving our product stewardship program to ensure product safety. 

AmSty maintains open communication with all value chain partners and provides technical, regulatory and product safety information including Product Stewardship Summaries for prioritized products below.
