Trinseo believes in the "vision of zero" with the ultimate goal of zero on-the-job incidents. With safety a top priority, Trinseo created the Triple Zero Award (000) program to recognize and reward operational teams and global research and development (R&D) groups that operate according to environmental, health, and safety (EH&S) best practices and have been incident-free.
In 2016, 21 Trinseo operational teams and three global R&D groups - a total of 1,486 employees - earned the Triple Zero Award, making the "vision of zero" a reality and 2016 a remarkable year for Trinseo in EH&S performance. With 83 percent of eligible teams receiving Triple Zero recognition, Trinseo achieved its best safety results since the company's formation in 2010. This performance places Trinseo in the top tier of all chemical companies.
In addition to these operational teams, our global research and development teams for latex binders, plastics, and rubber earned the Triple Zero Award in 2016.
