Health & Safety Performance Report

Our annual Health and Safety Performance Report is an important long-term initiative of the Australian chemistry industry. It has provided detailed insights into the industry’s health and safety performance since 2000.

The Report plays a central role in improving health and safety performance for the sector, providing insights to help businesses benchmark and identify areas for future improvement.

It is also important in promoting the principles of health and safety to industry value chain partners, external stakeholders and the broader community, and allows the industry to share examples of best practice and encourage others to act.
