Redox has reaffirmed our commitment to the health, safety, and security of our employees, community, and the environment, by successfully passing NACD’s Responsible Distribution® verification for the current three-year cycle.
Responsible Distribution is the National Association of Chemical Distributor’s (NACD) third-party-verified environmental, health, safety, and security program. It allows members to demonstrate their pledge to continuous performance improvement in chemical storage, handling, transportation, and disposal.
In December 1991, the member companies of NACD undertook as its most important mission the inception of Responsible Distribution, developed by NACD members for NACD members.
Responsible Distribution is a mandatory third-party verified environmental, health, safety & security program that lets members demonstrate their commitment to continuous performance improvement in every phase of chemical storage, handling, transportation, and disposal.
NACD members play a leadership role in their communities as information resources. They are eager to provide the same assistance and guidance to local, state, and federal legislators on technical issues relating to the safe handling, storage, transportation, use, and disposal of chemical products.
