Policy of OmniChem on Safety, Health and Environment

OmniChem continuously strives to supply a product with quality fully in accordance with the demands of the Customer and to be a reliable and consistent supplier of our services.

Because sustainable development is the only way to secure the future of our company we must, in all our activities, take into consideration the possible impact on our health and safety. It is also our duty to manufacture our products in harmony with the environment and especially our immediate neighbourhood.


The Management of OmniChem is committed:

  • To continuously endeavour to guarantee safe and health working conditions for our staff and third parties.
  • To strive to comply with all legal regulations related to safety, health and the environment.
  • To conduct our processes in an environmentally conscientious way including consideration of the choice of starting materials, process aides, process chemistries, process efficiencies and waste generation.
  • To realize this by the investigation and application of the best available technology.

We strive to continuously improve our performance in the respect of safety, health and environment. For this purpose targets are established and reviewed annually. These targets are determined by the management taking into consideration not only the vision of our staff and of the environment but also of our customers, the government and the group policies of our parent company Ajinomoto Co. Inc.

In the context of this policy we can define the key points as follows:

  • Health - Limit the exposure to hazardous substances in such a way that our staff members will not be affected now or later.
  • Control of chemical processes - Take all necessary precautions for chemical processes to avoid serious incidents.
  • Environmental care - To develop and maintain an environmental care system which corresponds to internationally accepted and recognized standards.
  • Incidents - Continuously reduce risks in order to further minimize the frequency and seriousness of work accidents.
  • Air emissions - To minimize the emissions to comply with the applicable standards under all circumstances.
  • Water - To limit water consumption and to limit the wastewater outfall to comply with the applicable standards under all circumstances.
  • Energy consumption - Efficient production and good control of our installations.

To realize this policy the contribution of all staff members is essential.

Therefore this policy is distributed across our whole organisation and everybody is requested to contribute with his/her positive cooperation. Responsibilities will be defined to realise these targets. The management will do whatever necessary to provide the means and to ensure necessary follow-up.

This policy is available to the public, upon request.
