Monson Companies is extraordinarily serious about its responsibilities as a corporate citizen. As a member of the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD), we are actively involved in Responsible Distribution.™
Responsible Distribution™ is a unique initiative developed to improve chemical handling processes nationwide.
The following information outlines our focus areas and how these areas effect our customers, improve our operations and reduce risks.
Safe Transportation of chemicals is essential in responsible distribution. Our drivers are fully trained, our equipment is properly maintained, and our products are contained and secured. We routinely audit our outside carriers to verify the same standards.
Handling and Storage
We insure that all products are stored and handled in accordance with all laws, regulations and acceptable industry standards. This applies to all Monson controlled and contracted storage facilities and transportation equipment. Meeting these requirements safeguards against exposures, prevents accidents and reduces emissions.
Job Procedures and Training
Written operating procedures and job descriptions are standard at Monson Companies, Inc. Employees and contract personnel are trained in the established job procedure for their specific functions. All training is in accordance with accepted industry practices and applicable laws and regulations.
Compliance Review and Training
Regulations are constantly changing and staying current is imperative! It is the policy of Monson Companies, Inc. to be in full compliance with all local, state and federal regulations as they pertain to the chemical distribution business.
We strive to promote safe, secure and responsible distribution of raw materials and products as well as insure safe working conditions for all employees. Through evaluation and planning we can reduce the risks associated with handling chemicals.
We are dedicated to an ongoing program of waste minimization and resource conservation. All waste generated as a result of business operations shall be contained and disposed of in a responsible manner and in accordance with all regulations.
Emergency Response and Public Preparedness
Emergency preparation requires consistent planning, both internally and with the cooperation of external agencies. Established emergency response procedures, emergency evacuations, spill containment and communication are just a few of the steps Monson has taken to be prepared in the event of an emergency.
Monson Companies, Inc. is dedicated to proactively advancing the guiding principles of Responsible Distribution™. We have direct involvement with community organizations, trade associations, government and regulatory officials and continued involvement with the NACD and the Massachusetts Chemical Technology Alliance.
Monson Companies, Inc. upholds the Guiding Principles of Responsible Distribution™ in the commerce of chemical products. We strive for continuous improvement in disseminating information and support to our customers on the proper use, storage, handling and disposal as well as proper health, safety and environment responsibilities in using chemicals.
