IN 2018, PRILLEX AMERICA PLANT EARNED RECERTIFICATION FOR RESPONSIBLE CARE FROM CHILE’S ASSOCIATION OF INDUSTRIAL CHEMICALS (ASIQUIM). THROUGH THIS VOLUNTARY COMMITMENT, CHEMICAL COMPANIES COMMIT TO ONGOING EFFORTS TO PERFECT THE PROCESSES OF PRODUCING, HANDLING, DISTRIBUTING, USING AND DISPOSING OF PRODUCTS IN ORDER TO SECURE THE BEST HEALTH AND SAFETY CONDITIONS FOR EMPLOYEES AND THE COMMUNITY, THE COMPANY AND ENVIRONMENTAL ASSETS.

In terms of comprehensive management of risks related to operating processes and resource protection, the 2018 campaign focused its efforts on enhancing worker occupational safety and health to maintain the highest possible level of physical, mental and social wellbeing among its people. The most common HSEC risk management activities include pre-employment and on-the-job health screenings, qualitative and quantitative assessments of risk agents, epidemiological surveillance and programs that specifically aim to control the risk of occupational disease.

The following are highlights from the 2018 efforts to improve employee occupational health and wellbeing:

HSEC MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

In 2018, Enaex publicized and implemented the HSEC-PSM integrated management system, which consists of 20 elements that comprise a world-class system that standardizes the main regulations on matters like OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and ISO (International Organization for Standardization).

As part of the HSEC-PSM Integrated Management System, the Conduct Observation Program was implemented in production plants in Chile. The more than 4,400 interactions between supervisors and workers aim to positively reinforce behavior in order to promote cultural change in the area of safety. The Occupational Health Program was also implemented to address current, local legal requirements. In keeping with corporate values, the program promotes a culture of health and quality of life through diagnostic initiatives and prevention of illnesses not associated with the working environment.
