Safety, Health and Environment

"Safety is the most important thing we do" . . . that’s our motto. Our employees are 70-times safer than the industry average, our safety standards are, in many instances, higher than those required by law. The water we use in our processes is returned five-times cleaner to the James River. Spruance is certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) for its Wildlife-at-Work Program. There are many species living throughout the 250 acres of available habitat that includes forest, open land, wetlands, open water and riparian areas. Our initiatives are focused on maintaining public trust by demonstrating a keen awareness and commitment to conducting business practices in a safe and environmentally conscious manner. We believe that all injuries and occupational illnesses as well as safety and environmental incidents are preventable, and represent our commitment to "zero." Spruance, along with the DuPont Company is on a journey of Sustainable Growth: Creating shareholder and societal value while reducing the environmental footprint in the value chains where we operate. The people of DuPont continue to advance our sustainability journey as we explore, discover, innovate and deliver solutions to global challenges. Spruance sponsors a Community Advisory Group to keep our neighbors informed of our operations and activities and to hear their concerns and comments on an ongoing basis. Protecting our employees and the environment is the responsibility of the entire team of Spruance employees. It is an integral part of the way we do business and it is woven into the very fabric of our operation.
