Maintaining the environment for residents
For ROCKWOOL, building and operating a production facility is a long-term commitment to a partnership with the community.
We are doing our due diligence by investing in technologies that will help to minimize any impact on noise and visibility, in addition to working with local transportation officials to reduce traffic during peak periods.
Health and safety practices
Besides delivering solutions that protect our customers, ROCKWOOL is also committed to providing a safe, fair, and engaging workplace for our employees. We have developed a culture that puts the safety of our colleagues first, including requiring all personnel to wear standard Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Specific areas of the industrial facility require hearing protection, and some tasks may require additional safety gear that we provide.
Our indoor air quality does not require employees to wear respirators or dust masks in their regular duties. Specific tasks requiring confined space entry are subject to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and appropriate PPE is provided and used as required along with ensuring regular inspections of all company equipment.
Prepared in the event of an emergency
At ROCKWOOL, we take all available precautions to prevent an emergency. As part of our emergency preparedness planning, we have conducted a risk assessment that includes risks associated with fire, explosion, and spills. This detailed risk assessment has concluded that no event on-site will cause any evacuation situation for schools and neighbors.
