Safety, Health and Environment (SHE)

Our commitment

“Lucite International is committed to improving the SHE performance of our business to be among the best in the World. This commitment stems from the belief that minimising harm to people and the environment is the only acceptable way to treat our most valuable resources and is essential to the long-term viability of the business.”

Board of Directors

Our performance

Today, Lucite International’s safety performance ranks among the best in the chemical industry and is considerably better than that of other industrial, manufacturing sectors.

Our commitment to continuously improve safety performance has delivered excellent results and we are very proud of these. The heritage of our strong safety culture goes back many years with the most significant steps being made in the 1990s when ICI Acrylics merged its business with DuPont’s acrylics operation in the US. What followed was an intense period of cross learning, which resulted in the 21 Elements of SHE Excellence, a simple model of the things required to achieve world-class performance. We also devised a simple assessment tool for identifying improvement opportunities.

Our ongoing focus

Learning through shared experiences together with strong leadership based on the simple premise that eliminating injuries is the right thing to do have both been critical in our successes to date. Our structured improvement program helps us to concentrate on practices or inputs, rather than reacting to events. In summary, our focus is:

BREXIT STATEMENT

As the date of UK’s withdrawal from the EU is rapidly approaching there still remains real uncertainty as to the definitive outcome and shape of the Brexit deal (until the 31st of December 2020)

We, as Lucite International Alpha B.V. and in particular our Brexit team have been preparing ourselves for the worst-case scenario of a “No-deal Brexit” with a no free trade agreement between the EU and UK from the 31st of December 2020.

We have been focussing on key areas including but not limited to changes in tariffs, regulatory frameworks, customs borders, and logistics & supply chain for raw materials and finished product. This approach enables us to anticipate and adapt ourselves to any potential Brexit-deal.  

Despite the political uncertainty, we can promise that we are confident we have prepared  thoroughly so that the effects of a “No-Deal Brexit” scenario should be minimal, and we intent to maintain our high level of customer service and support that you have come to expect from Lucite International Alpha B.V.
