Process Safety Code

Pilot Chemical is committed to safe operations. The Responsible Care® Process Safety Code sets forth this commitment to a culture of process safety throughout the manufacturing environment.  

The Code aims to specifically address process safety concepts such as leadership, accountability and culture in order to drive overall process safety performance improvement.  It is also intended to complement existing regulatory requirements, such as OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) standard and EPA’s Risk Management Plan (RMP) standard. 

The Responsible Care® Process Safety Code differs from the above regulatory standards that, by necessity, focus on process safety at an individual facility. The Process Safety Code is more universal—it addresses issues across Pilot Chemical, and includes a commitment to set process safety expectations, define accountability for process safety performance and allocate adequate resources to achieve performance expectations.

Pilot Chemical commits to systematic, continuous improvement in process safety through applying the Code’s seven management practices, which address:

  • Leadership and culture
  • Accountability
  • Knowledge, expertise and training
  • Understanding and prioritization of process safety risks
  • Comprehensive process safety management system
  • Information sharing
  • Monitoring and improving performance
