ACC is excited to highlight our commitment to workplace safety by promoting the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)’s Safe + Sound Week during August 12-18, 2019. Safe + Sound Week is “a nationwide event held each August that recognizes the successes of workplace health and safety programs.”
The official OSHA website on Safe + Sound Week offers information and ideas on how to keep workers safe. ACC encourages employers and workers to focus on health and safety programs through OSHA’s three core elements- management leadership, worker participation and finding and fixing hazards.

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 Alliance, click here.
In addition, CPI, ADI and DII 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.
