For nearly two decades, Northstar Chemical has made safety our first priority. It is the basis of our culture, operations and customer relationships.
Northstar demonstrates our commitment by following all pertinent safety regulations we are subject to — OSHA, DOT, FDA, and federal and state requirements — in numerous ways:
In our business, the first line of defense is commitment to well-designed, consistent training of our employees. Northstar additionally offers training services to all of our customers. We work with local safety authorities to improve their knowledge of, and responses to, our products.
Northstar has established all aspects of of our operations, on and off-site, with the safest procedures, equipment and tools. We are committed to ensuring the proper storage, handling and transfer of the products we distribute.
Drivers play an essential role in making sure our customers and their employees receive product safely. Northstar’s drivers’ average tenure with our company is 15.3 years. Drivers participate in monthly safety training to refine best practices and learn any new safety information or regulations.
Northstar’s Oregon Department of Transit (DOT) record is excellent. Our company’s Experience Modification Rating (EMR), a key indicator of worker safety, is extremely low at 0.68.
In addition to rigorously following all US Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, we work with our customers
to reduce their chemical footprint through solutions like
Northstar’s mini-bulk service.
Our vigilance in adhering to a strong safety and environmental framework has resulted in zero chemical release incidents, and a dramatic reduction in our customers’ use of chemical packaging.
