Setting Standards for: Safety and Environmental Protection

Environment and Quality Management

Certification emphasizes high standards of quality and sustainability

In our core business of chemical products, we consider compliance with high quality standards to be a basic requirement if we want to maintain an advantage in day-to-day competition. Chemical purchasers and processors refer increasingly to certification standards recognized internationally throughout the industry. We have made it our objective to always offer our customers more than the required minimum.

Focusing on the value chain demonstrates our increased concern with the issues of energy and environmental management. We acknowledge our ecological and social responsibility, having begun at an early stage to define detailed guidelines and targets for product and plant safety, hazard avoidance, occupational health and safety, environmental protection and transportation safety. HANSA GROUP and its subsidiaries take great care that plants and other facilities pose no danger to the health of employees or to the environment.

To ensure this, all employees receive training at regular intervals in all issues relevant to their work. We are guided at all of our sites by the guidelines laid down in management systems for occupational health and safety in accordance with BS OHSAS 18001:2007.

To minimize health and environmental hazards in the production, transportation and use of chemicals and hazardous substances, we adhere strictly to the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) for the classification and labeling of chemicals. In accordance with these internationally uniform standards, chemicals are classified, labeled on packaging, and compiled in augmented safety data sheets. We also place great value on comprehensively implementing standards from the REACH European chemicals regulations, which came into effect in 2007 with the goal of registering, evaluating and authorizing chemicals. These regulations stipulate that all chemicals require registration if more than one ton per year is produced in or imported to Europe.
