労働安全衛生

当社は、社員、請負業者、地域住民、環境を危険から守るため、労働安全衛生の卓越性を追求し続けています。

人々の安全

安全は、今も、これからも、キャボットの最優先事項です。キャボットでは、すべての社員と請負業者に理念を持つことを奨励しています。

キャボットでは、効果的なプロジェクトプランニング、すべての操作手順の遵守、潜在的危険性の認識、個人用保護具 (PPE) の適切な使用、各自の責任に高い優先度をつけています。キャボットでは、すべての工場に主要指標を使用しており、その一環として、ニアミスの特定と報告に特に注目しています。これにより、重傷事故の発生を未然に防ぐことができます。当社の報告事故発生率(TRIR)は、米国の化学業界平均を大幅に下回っていますが、引き続き文化やリーダーシップの評価だけでなく、優先サイトレビューにも注力しています。キャボットでは、&米国労働安全衛生局 (OSHA) によって定められた "報告事故" の定義を使用しています。



Process Safety

Process Safety EventsIn 2018, we undertook a project to refresh our approach to process safety management so that we may better track our performance and identify opportunities for improvement in our program. In accordance with this effort, we have revisited and updated our approach for how we categorize Tier 1 and Tier 2 process safety events to ensure we report such events as accurately and transparently as possible. Previously, these classifications were considered only for incidents that were reported according to our internal definitions for environmental nonconformances, recordable injuries or significant process safety events. However, we realized a more thorough and accurate approach should also take into account other process safety events that were less significant than those originally considered, which resulted in updates to the historical Tier 1 and Tier 2 classifications.  

Last year, we experienced three Tier 1 events and 10 Tier 2 events. The Tier 1 events included a material release from a relief valve, a release within a process area and a process fire. There were no injuries as a result of these events. The majority of Tier 2 events were related to incidents including chemical releases, most of which were captured within secondary containment, minimizing the impact to the environment. To provide an additional level of focus in our process safety management program, we introduced a series of leading performance indicators that we believe will help us prevent future incidents. These indicators track on-time completion of our process hazard analysis plans as well as closure of corrective actions from events and process safety audits.
