Dow is leading the industry in innovating new technologies to remove workers from higher-hazard activities.
As part of a 2025 LIFE multigenerational technology plan, Dow is increasing its efforts to use machines to do the job when there are increased hazards to consider.

The use of technology is part of an effort to help achieve Dow’s “World-Leading Operations Performance”2025 Sustainability Goal target to “eliminate fatalities, reduce severe injury and illness incidents and maintain its total recordable injury and illness rate at industry-leading levels.” With higher-hazard workflows, technology can be safer and more effective at carrying out tasks that put employees at risk.
