Kingchem and Corporate Social Responsibility
Kingchem is a careful and responsible corporate citizen in protecting our employees, our community and our environment on a day to day basis. For that reason, the EHS department at our production facility receives the very highest levels of corporate support necessary concerning the knowledge, skills and planning needed to ensure safe, effective, daily operations, as well as to effectively offer conformity management, risk evaluation, work approvals and CAPA responses, to name just a few.
We’re proud that the department goes beyond expectations to volunteer our plant to the city fire department as their site for chemical-emergency training around, for example, HF/Cl2 leakage preparedness scenarios. But they also go beyond emergency drills to promote communication and cooperation with public emergency, safety-supervision, environmental-protection and health bureaus and agencies in order to address preparedness concerns within the entire emergency-response network.
Our plant also proactively manages waste to minimize the environmental impact of manufacturing operations with its on-site facilities, including recently upgraded waste-water treatment, chemical-scrubber air-treatment and waste-incineration facilities.
We maintain a conscientious responsibility for our staff, our customers, customer stakeholders, surrounding environment, and society at large because we know our global community depends on it. That’s why we continually enhance goals around safety and green-chemistry processes, make upgrades to EHS, and continually improving employee training, good management practices and standards procedures.
But don’t take our word for it. We’re happy to report that others believe in our commitment, too. We’ve passed not only the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative (PSCI) audit, but also routinely pass audits by major international pharmaceutical and agricultural companies, as well.
