Environment, Health, Safety, and Security Management System
The Chemours Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) management system provides an organized approach for EHS management with processes to measure performance, identify risks and opportunities, and ensure continuous improvement of the management system. It was designed to meet the requirements of the Responsible Care® RC 14001 technical specification for managing environmental, health, safety, product safety, and security performance.
Responsible Care® is an International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) initiative governing the safe handling of chemical products throughout their life cycles—from inception in the research laboratory; through manufacture and distribution; to ultimate reuse, recycle, and disposal—and includes public involvement in decision-making processes. The Responsible Care® RC 14001 technical specification combines the ISO 14001 environmental management system with the Responsible Care® management system into a single process that defines leadership practices and performance excellence for environmental, health, safety, and security management systems. The RC 14001 technical specification addresses most of the ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety standard (which has replaced OHSAS 18001) requirements for safety and health processes and many of the ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management standard security requirements. Chemours’ adherence to the Responsible Care® RC 14001 and its security code provides nearly equivalent coverage to these ISO standards.
