American Chemistry Council Recognizes Safe + Sound Week with Safety Resources


The American Chemistry Council (ACC) is promoting safety resources in light of Safe + Sound week on August 7 -13, a nationwide annual campaign launched by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that underscores the importance of safety in the workplace.

ACC has announced a number of resources available through its Center for Polyurethane Industry, Aliphatic Diisocyanates (ADI), and Diisocyanates (DII) groups, reflecting its commitment to supporting a safe workplace for those in the polyurethanes value chain, including:

  • Resource libraries with information on product stewardship and health and safety, with insights on polyurethane safety, industrial hygiene, worker protection, waste disposal, transportation requirements, and regulatory compliance


  • Important safety guidelines for the application of spray polyurethane foam (SPF)


  • A free, online SPF Chemical Health and Safety Training Program that covers hazard information on SPF ingredients, safety practices, handling and disposal, and work site safety controls. Two versions of the program (U.S. and Canadian) are available.


  • A video series on the safe handling of Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate (MDI) and Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI), to inform employers and employees about the potential hazards associated with transporting MDI and TDI. The series also provides information on PPE, unloading procedures, proper disposal of waste, and practices to minimize potential risks.


  • An easy-to-understand three-minute instructional video for workers in the automotive refinishing industry to learn about working safely with these important products

Access more information and resources on ACC’s website and learn more about the Safe + Sound campaign via OSHA.
