Healthy Workplaces

CIA has a dedicated Health Leadership Strategy informed by member companies. You can become part of this when you join, participate in discussions relevant to your business and network at our health leadership conference. Together with our members, CIA helps develop leading signpost guides on complex issues, examples being Drug and Alcohol policy development and Mental Health & Mental Well-being policy. CIA’s objective on workplace health is to help members achieve sustainable healthy workplaces.”


Accidents and incidents can harm our people and the environment, damage reputation, and attract attention from the regulators.They also cost chemical businesses MONEY. Membership of CIA can help you manage performance and avoid these consequences - we have a proven track record of reducing the likelihood of incidents and other compliance failures at member sites, improving safety performance, meeting legal compliance, and managing continuous improvement through our Responsible Care® programme. CIA’s team of experts provides advice and guidance on process safety, Human Factors, occupational injury common issues, and awareness of Health and Safety Executive’s priorities and expectations for your sites. Through the various Network meetings that CIA leads we provide a forum for members to help each other improve performance and avoid costs through Best Practice sharing, and benchmarking of performance against peers.
