Safety Policy

Safety, Health, Environment
& Security Policy

Safety is more than a matter of policy — it’s a matter of culture

Our Four Pillars

Our positive and responsible company culture is built on four pillars: safety, health, environment, and security (SHE&S). Intimately interconnected, these pillars work together to protect all our stakeholders.

In addition to our SHE&S framework, the American Chemistry Council has accepted Odyssey as a member of its Responsible Care® program. We uphold its Guiding Principles. Learn more about the principles of Responsible Care®

How we do it

More than just a set of guiding principles, SHE&S permeates every aspect of our work and culture.

All programs and procedures that structure our operations and services have to be designed with SHE&S front-and-center. This includes compliance with internal SHE&S policy as well as any government policy.

Cultures of safety are supported by regular training. This is why we continuously train our staff to ensure SHE&S is ingrained into all aspects of their work responsibilities.

Officials, associates, customers and the public deserve continuous and transparent communication on matters that affect their safety. We provide a steady flow of information to all stakeholders touched by our business on SHE&S risks and hazards and recommended protective measures.

Safety goes beyond the borders of Odyssey. We partner with other companies that handle chemicals to share knowledge about SHE&S and the principles of Responsible Care® to ensure our industry is safe across the board.

Always improving

SHE&S and Responsible Care® are not static. We work to continuously improve our procedures by conducting safety audits, by creating goals and metrics to benchmark performance, and by integrating new industry best practices.
