|EQUATE implements a comprehensive Product Stewardship Program in all its business with the aim of ensuring overall Environment, Health and Safety, and Environmental protection as an integral part of designing, manufacturing, marketing, distributing, using, recycling, and disposal of products.
The product stewardship program is an activity that evaluates the product hazards and exposure using state-of-the-art hazard identification tools. Product hazards are intrinsic characteristics with the potential to cause harm, such as flammability, corrosiveness, toxicity and non-biodegradability.
Product Risk Characterization and Risk Management are also carried out to minimize all product related risks.
Through the Product Stewardship Program, EQUATE aims at safe, responsible handling of products at its own manufacturing sites, as well as work closely with suppliers, carriers, distributors and customers to help them maintain exemplary safety and environmental standards.
EQUATE’s support includes technical assistance, training, health, safety and environmental advice, as well as guidance and product information through a range of added-value services that include:
- Material Safety Data Sheet
- Product-specific safety training
- Storage and Handling Guidelines
- Regulatory information where appropriate
- Advice on clean-up procedures and accidental spills
