CI fulfills its safety mission in part through the work of volunteers from our member organizations. This release describes the safety pamphlets and other materials that were revised or published since the end of December, and we thank all those who contributed their time and expertise to ensure we have the right materials to "Aim for Zero." The full release can be found here.
At the Annual General Meeting on March 14th four new members were elected to The Chlorine Institute Board of Directors:
CI appreciates the willingness of each of these new board members to provide their time and talents to the betterment of the industry. They are welcome additions to the existing board of 14 who provide strategic guidance and oversight to CI’s ongoing efforts to enhance safety and security performance. Please offer your support and congratulations as these four individuals take on their new role.
CI strongly supports the work of the Chemical Safety Board (CSB). Facing its possible complete elimination, CI sent letters to the White House, Senate Committee on Appropriations, and the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations. Read the letter here.
The Global Safety Team is one of the committees of the World Chlorine Council. CI has been an active participant since the GST’s founding. One of the major initiatives of the GST is its quarterly newsletter which provides a great opportunity for sharing of experience from all regions of the world.
