2013 Performance Improvement Awards Program

2013 Performance Improvement Awards Program

The application process for the 2013 Performance Improvement Awards has now been finalized. Thank you to all who submitted applications. We received a record number of applicants this year. Winners were selected by a group of SOCMA members who did not submit awards applications. It was a double-blind process.

Applications were judged based on the following five core areas: Stakeholder Communications, Product Stewardship, EHS&S in Planning and Operations, Employee Training and Engagement, and Resource Management and Waste Minimization – specifically taking into account practices and principles that demonstrate continuous improvement above and beyond the requirements of the ChemStewards program. The Sustainability award acknowledges a facility that displays exemplary commitment to sustainability and green chemistry. The Educational Outreach awards celebrate a facility’s efforts to work with local educational programs in areas of chemistry.

Winners were honored during SOCMA’s 92nd Annual Dinner on December 9, 2013 at the Marriott Marquis, Times Square, New York, N.Y. For a recap from last year’s annual dinner – click here.

What Members Are Saying…

“Right off the bat, SOCMA’s ChemStewards provides you with a template that shows you good practices that should be implemented across-the-board.  And the dialogue with other members and SOCMA staff is very valuable.  You would have to pay a lot of money to bring in that kind of expertise, but with SOCMA, it’s all a benefit of membership.”
