Environmental Health & Safety
At READE® we recognize the global nature of environmental, health and safety issues, and our responsibilities to customers, employees and local communities. Within our Responsible Care page you can review the READE® pledge in this area.

It goes without saying that today's companies should take environmental protection needs and the health and safety of employees into consideration in the performance of their business operations.

READE® has long been conscious of this responsibility. Decisions on all levels of the company - be it business management, sales or logistics - make a "Best Efforts" attempt to take a full account of the requirements of health, chemical safety and environmental protection.

READE® is participating in the U. S. Homeland Security Customs- Trade Partnership Against Terrorism "C-TPAT" validation program for exports and imports. READE® was formally inspected on-site under the authority of Section 11 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) on 5 May 2009 by two environmental engineer representatives of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Washington, DC.

READE® passed the onsite EPA inspection with favorable exit briefing oral comments from the lead inspector toward our conduct of business. READE® was formally visited on-site and counselled by the Security and Hazardous Materials Division of the U. S. Department of Transportation (FAA) on 4 August 2011 under the authority of CFR Title 49: Section 172.704 to ensure READE was in compliance with the required employee training requirements toward our conduct of business.
