The cost of inaction - complimentary white paper

The cost of inaction.

Managing the risk of chemical incidents throughout the supply chain.


A step-by-step framework to developing a competitive, compliant and commercially responsible chemical safety strategy across a product’s supply chain.

Loss of life or serious injury. Environmental damage. Irreparable harm to commercial reputation. Product safety managers know that the price of a chemical incident goes far beyond financial cost. But in today’s dynamic chemical industry, implementing a comprehensive programme of risk mitigation, crisis management and regulatory compliance is a complex task. Here, the UK’s National Chemical Emergency Centre (NCEC) provides a step-by-step framework to developing a competitive, compliant and commercially responsible chemical safety strategy across a product’s supply chain.

In this white paper, NCEC's Head of Emergency Response, Dan Haggarty, reviews the contemporary challenges facing chemical companies. A practical framework is provided based on five critical and interlinked pillars of professional chemical safety. These are:

  • Finance – quantifying the cost of a chemical incident and the value of risk mitigation.
  • Governance - creating a culture that recognises the value of a comprehensive chemical safety program, from regulatory compliance through to supply chain training.
  • Mitigating risk – ensuring that all staff and stakeholders are adequately trained and that business continuity plans are fit for purpose.
  • Incident response – delivering instantaneous emergency response when the worst happens.
  • Distribution – ensuring that processes are secure across the supply chain.
This, alongside case studies, checklists and top tips will help enhance the value of risk mitigation processes.
