Banner Chemicals, one of 2M’s subsidiaries, has won the Health, Safety & Environment Award by Chemicals Northwest.
The award is for Banner Chemicals’ special initiative in ensuring safer packaging practices along the supply chain, in accordance with the ADR regulations for appropriate ullage space, preventing leakage during transit or storage. The initiative goes further than regulatory requirements, by extending the principles to chemicals that are not classified as hazardous. This extension is in line with 2M Group’s mission to improve the public perception of the Chemical Industry.
Banner Chemicals’ initiative has included writing guidelines for the Solvent Industry Association (SIA), to ensure smaller businesses also have access to Best Practice information with examples of commonly used solvents in different drum sizes.
David Dalton, Group Compliance Director for Banner Chemicals and its parent company, 2M Holdings Ltd, said:
“We are all ambassadors for the Chemical Industry and take Health and Safety very seriously – it is our responsibility to share our expertise where we can and we work extensively with the SIA and other organisations to do that.”
