TQL Becoming Responsible Care Partner
Total Quality Logistics earned a spot in the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care Partnership Program and will begin the process to receive full certification.
Responsible Care is the ACC’s comprehensive health, safety, security and environmental performance improvement initiative. Its mission is to promote continual environmental health, safety and sustainability in the chemical supply chain.
“This partnership is important in ensuring we continue to provide world-class service,” said TQL president Kerry Byrne. “Going through this process will make us a better partner to our customers, giving them another level of assurance that their freight will be transported safely and responsibly.
Over the next three years TQL will conduct a full audit and implement ACC standards to receive full membership and earn Responsible Care Management System certification.
“We are pleased to welcome Total Quality Logistics to the American Chemistry Council Responsible Care Partner program,” said Greg Rhoads of the ACC. “ACC Responsible Care Partners have made a public commitment to strengthening the supply chain through continual improvement in environmental, health, safety and security performance.”
Responsible Care includes more than 100 partner companies, extending safe management of chemicals to leading transportation, storage and distribution companies in North America.
The global Responsible Care initiative began in Canada in 1984 and has spread to more than 60 regional and national associations around the world. The ACC adopted Responsible Care in 1988.
Partner companies are committed to safety and have an employee safety record five times better than the average of the U.S. manufacturing sector and three times better than the chemistry sector.
In addition, Responsible Care companies have reduced hazardous releases to the air, land and water by 74 percent; since 1995, the number of distribution incidents among member companies has declined by 62 percent.
