Emergency Response Planning (ERP)
We take our responsibility seriously to provide our internal and external stakeholders with a safe and secure environment. Our emergency preparedness and response plans ensure our facilities are ready to respond to foreseeable emergencies that might potentially impact our employees, the public or the environment. Every Huntsman facility is required to develop and implement written emergency preparedness and response plans and regularly self-audit them. At an enterprise level, we audit these plans every five years.
This process applies to Huntsman-owned or -operated facilities – including manufacturing sites, advanced technology and R&D centers, and key business locations. It typically does not apply to joint ventures in which we are a minority owner, or to third-party warehouses and tollers, unless specifically requested. Our facilities develop ERPs, train employees on plan requirements, and share our plans with local emergency responders. We conduct drills annually and include community organizations where appropriate.
As a part of corporate crisis planning, corporate communications teams may be set up in the event of an incident that may require community outreach. Sites designate a contact to communicate with the community during an emergency.
