Integrating safety into all we do

A commitment to safety, employee health and world-leading environmental performance is engrained in our culture and central to how we work.

Our response to COVID-19

Dow responded to COVID-19 with resiliency and ingenuity. Our first priority was our people, and we quickly acted to put crisis protocols in place in our facilities to reduce exposure risk, while continuing to serve our customers. To respond to shortages of critical supplies for frontline workers, we shifted some of our manufacturing lines to make needed materials – including developing an open-source face shield. We also helped fund local nonprofits to provide financial and mental health relief to their communities. And we developed a phased approach to help workers slowly and safely return to the workplace.
