Safety is a Core Value at Afton



All Afton employees take responsibility for their individual safety and the safety of their coworkers. We are all actively involved as a team to prevent accidents and demonstrate safety excellence through intervention and personal example.

Because safety performance is an indicator of our overall company performance, we have developed a health, safety, environmental protection and security (EHS3) management program that is embraced on every level of our company.  We adopted the Responsible Care® program, developed by the American Chemistry Council, and follow its Guiding Principles to manage our operations and products effectively.

Since implementing the program, our safety record has been widely recognized for reducing and preventing injury.

In addition to promoting safety in the workplace, we extend this commitment to the communities in which we operate.  Afton works hard to make continuous progress toward our vision of “no accidents, injuries or harm to the environment,” and publicly reports our global health, safety and environmental performance. We believe strongly in ethical leadership that will increasingly benefit society, the economy and the environment.
