Specialty chemistry produces high-value chemicals, which are used in products vital to consumers and industry and serve a range of important markets including performance chemicals, agricultural chemicals and pharmaceuticals. These chemistries are critical to virtually every sector of the economy and touch almost every facet of our daily lives, and SOCMA members are committed to producing them in a safe and responsible way.
Prioritizing safety in chemical production and transport is more than a practice, it’s a core principle and commitment in plant operations, product stewardship, business partnerships, and community engagement. SOCMA encourages and supports manufacturers to continuously improve their employee safety measures and the security of their facilities.
