Dow Mozzanica Italy Achieves International OHSAS 18001 Certification

- August 03, 2016 -

In July, Dow AgroSciences and Dow Coating Materials plants in Mozzanica, Italy, successfully passed an external audit conducted by Certiquality, a Federchimica-recognized organization, and achieved OHSAS 18001 certification for the manufacture of agrochemicals, including crop protection products, and water-based acrylic emulsions.

The certification project required the deep integration of already-existing systems into a single, integrated environmental, safety and quality system, with a significant effort of the site’s entire staff. This accomplishment confirms the Company’s commitment to transparency and awareness, both with regard to its employees and to the local community and territory.

The OHSAS 18001 international standard is the most important occupational health and safety management system specification, and the achievement of this certification is a very significant result for the Mozzanica site.
