Security and Risk Management

Dixie’s Security Plan focuses on the protection of people, property, products, processes and information systems in the sustainable chemistry industry. These procedures are designed to identify and reduce the risk of a wide range of security threats such as terrorism, vandalism, sabotage, and workplace violence. Dixie believes that security is a responsibility shared throughout the chemistry industry and value chain—requiring actions by others such as suppliers, transporters, customers and government agencies.

Dixie uses a risk-based approach to identify, assess, and address vulnerabilities, prevent or mitigate incidents, define training requirements, and enhance emergency response capabilities.

Risk Management Team

The Risk Management Team (RMT) provides management review of site security, process safety programs, and risk management plans. The team draws on a broad range of expertise throughout the organization to ensure continued safe operation and chemistry industry emergency preparedness.

Emergency Response

Dixie’s volunteer Emergency Response Team (ERT) is well-prepared to respond should an emergency arise in the plant or community. ERT training exceeds OSHA and EPA requirements for the chemistry industry. ERT members are trained in Fire Fighting, Hazmat, Rescue, CPR and First Aid. Some ERT members are also trained as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). Dixie participates in routine drills with Channel Industries Mutual Aid (CIMA) and the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC).
