Supporting UN sustainable development goals with level 1 telephone emergency response best practice
Be part of the discussion with some of the chemical industries experts from leading organisations and chemical associations, to talk about level 1 telephone emergency response best practice and its role beyond compliance.
NCEC is a leading level 1 telephone emergency response service, providing advice in the event of a chemical incident.
It’s tempting to think, if a serious chemical incident has not occurred in your organisation, it never will. In reality, incidents happen to many organisations that have never experienced one before – whether it is during manufacture, transport or at the point of use. As a result of this, harm can be inflicted on people, the environment, company assets and reputation.
Manufacturers, users and transporters of hazardous substances and materials now have a bigger responsibility when deciding which emergency response provider’s telephone number to display on their product labels and SDS.
Having an emergency response provider will ensure you are compliant with your local regulations, but there is much more to it. A robust emergency response service can be paramount in keeping people safe and protecting the environment when a chemical incident occurs. During this event, our experts will discuss what emergency response best practice is and how it can support sustainability obligations, such as responsible care and the UN sustainable development goals.
Who should attend
- Companies anywhere in the world who manufacture, use or transport chemicals.
- Those responsible for the product stewardship of chemicals and materials.
