Industry is Committed
to Being Safe and Sound!
ACC is committed to promoting a healthy, safe and sound
workplace. ACC has formed a voluntary Alliance with OSHA to provide members,
occupational physicians, stakeholders, and others operating with diisocyanate
chemicals along the polyurethanes value chain with information, guidance, and
access to training resources that will help them further protect the health and
safety of workers. Three groups from ACC are leading the work with OSHA: Center
for the Polyurethane Industry (CPI), Diisocyanates Panel (DII) and the Aliphatic
Diisocyanates Panels (ADI). Together,
we’re committed to continuing to foster safe and more healthful American
workplaces. To learn more about this
In addition, CPI,
all have substantial resource libraries with sources of information about
safety and product stewardship, including guidance materials on general
polyurethane product safety, worker protection, waste disposal, transportation
guidelines, industrial hygiene and regulatory compliance.
