We at Clariant Refinery Services believe that all accidents are avoidable and strive to cause no harm to people, the environment or the communities in which we operate. Senior management is committed to achieving the highest possible standards of health, safety and environmental protection throughout all functions within our organization.
Clariant Refinery Services operates both global- and business-oriented documented management systems to manage all aspects of our health, safety and environmental affairs. These systems adhere to respected worldwide standards such as EN ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 and comply with Clariant’s Corporate Guidelines, national legislation and local business practices.
We continually improve our performance by measuring, monitoring and reviewing our environmental, safety and health activities.
Clariant Refinery Services employs only trained and competent personnel. All roles have their health, safety and environmental competency requirements identified and each employee has a documented training plan.
We only use sub-contractors who have suitable and sufficient HSE capabilities that comply with our standards. As a minimum, these include safe working practices for the tasks they are required to perform and that those performing the task have received sufficient training to be deemed competent.
The systematic analysis of risk and workplace hazards is a prerequisite for our business processes. Appropriate measures are taken to manage, minimize or eliminate, and communicate the risks. Regular inspections and audits support this process.
We assess our products for compliance with health, safety and environmental legislation before they are placed on the market. The assessment considers all stages in the supply chain, including:
- Raw Material Procurement
- Disposal Considerations
Information on any hazardous properties for our products, as well as safe handling advice, is contained within material safety data sheets (MSDS) and product labels. Our MSDSs comply with the legislative requirements for the markets in which they are placed.
Clariant Refinery Services & REACH

Accordingly, at this stage we can confirm that all our products marketed in Europe are in full compliance with REACH requirements.
