Environment, Health and Safety in Elizabethtown


The Elizabethtown site is committed to the principles of the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care®.  We seek continual improvement in our environmental, health, and safety performance.

Sustainability and Environment

Sustainability and the safekeeping of the environment is a core value of Dow Corning.  We recognize the need to integrate environmental considerations into all parts of our businesses, in particular:  manufacturing, research, product and process design, plant construction, and facility management.  We have identified the operations in our plant that will have an effect on our environment, and have installed pollution prevention controls that will keep our air, water, and land protected.

Community's Well Being

The Elizabethtown site is active in the planning of our community’s well being.  We have a representative of the plant participating on the Local Emergency Planning Committee.  Our site trains with our local fire department, emergency medical service, police, and the hospital.

Employee Health and Safety

The consideration of the health and safety of our employees is another core value of Dow Corning.  We design our processes with the safety of our employees in mind, we provide year-round training on safe work habits, and we conduct internal inspections to assure that we have a safe workplace.

The Elizabethtown site offers our employees periodic physicals to monitor their health.  A blood pressure machine is readily available, and flu shots are offered on an annual basis.  Employees are given discount memberships to local health clubs.

 We care about our employees, families, neighbors, and the environment!
