Evaluating the impact of chemical waste: How safety and the bottom line can both benefit

Download Type: Adobe PDF

This paper demonstrates that it is possible to reduce chemical costs by identifying and limiting the wastes found in dispensing, storage and application. Reducing these hidden costs will also improve productivity and health and safety in the workplace.

Manufacturing uses labour, machines, tools, chemicals and biological processing to transform raw materials into finished goods on a large scale. All of which have a direct cost that can be easily calculated and tracked.

What are less apparent are the hidden costs of the manufacturing processes; specifically, those involving chemicals that are used to clean parts, materials and equipment.

The hidden costs

It’s the hidden costs – not of the chemicals themselves, but of the way they are dispensed, used, and stored – that can have a significant impact on an organization’s bottom line.
This paper from Kimberly-Clark Professional sets out to show that the appropriate use of chemicals is as much a process/production opportunity as a health and safety issue.
