Ohio Chemistry Technology Council (OCTC) is proud to announce this year's Awards for Excellence! We are honored to recognize exceptional performances in environmental, health, safety and security by companies in Ohio’s chemical industry!

Eagle Award Winner 

OCTC is excited to announce this year's Eagle Award for Excellence in Environmental, Health, Safety & Security Performance. Our panel of judges selected this program for standing out in scope, implementation, impact and sustainability. 

The Lubrizol Corporation - Painesville Facility

Lubrizol’s Painesville plant assembled a cross functional team made up of 10 individuals to revamp the Safe Work Program. This team spent a year developing the new program, performing trials in their training center, running a 3-month trial in one section of the Manufacturing area, providing training to all employees and being in the field supporting the Go live. The revamped program has set up the plant to be successful in executing work with a high-risk potential in a safe manner, ensuring everyone goes home alive and well. Click HERE to read Lubrizol Painesville's full program description!
