    Speaker Notes:

    OSHA and The Dow Chemical Company signed an Alliance on Jan. 13, 2003 (renewed May 26, 2004, May 12, 2006, and June 27, 2008). The Alliance focuses on enhancing a culture of prevention while sharing proven practices and technical knowledge in the areas of but not limited to process safety management, safety and health management systems, emergency preparedness, and employee wellness programs. Additional information on the OSHA and The Dow Chemical Company Alliance is available on the Alliance Web page on the OSHA Web site.

    As a product of the OSHA and The Dow Chemical Company Alliance, Dow developed four case studies. This presentation provides a brief overview of the case studies.

    • Contractor Safety: Texas Operations Contractor Alliance for Safety (TOCAS) at Dow Facility in Freeport, Texas (Sep. 2008).

    • Motor Vehicle Accidents: The Dow Chemical Company's Use of "Six Sigma" Methodology (Dec. 2005).
    • Ergonomics Case Study: The Dow Chemical Company's Use of the "Six Sigma" Methodology (May 2004).

    The case studies are posted on OSHA's Web site at www.osha.gov. See the Success Stories and Case Studies page on OSHA's Compliance Assistance page or The Dow Chemical Company page on OSHA's Alliance page.
