Promoting the safe use of diisocyanates

Walk the Talk is a programme developed by the members of ISOPA with the aim of improving safety, health and environmental best practices across the European polyurethanes industry. The Walk the Talk programme focuses on the behavioural safety of industrial and professional users involved in the industry through an ongoing dialogue. The programme consists of detailed sets of training covering all the phases of the industrial process: processing, maintenance, warehousing and waste. From the arrival of chemicals to the discharge, which rely on potentially dangerous operations, ISOPA provides support to both users and logistics service providers. Two information packages are available: a Basic Safety Package and a package containing EU REACH & CLP information.

The safe transport of diisocyanates is essential for both people and manufacturers. All the participants in the supply chain, the manufacturers of MDI/ TDI, the transportation company and the receiver of the products play vital roles in ensuring that accidents are prevented. ISOPA is committed to the continuous increase of best practices in the loading, transport, unloading and storage of diisocyanates and polyols. Our aim is to assure maximum protection of health and safety and a consistent industry wide approach. ISOPA developed a series of guidelines that reflect the collective knowledge and best practice of the logistics personnel of the ISOPA member companies. They cover all aspects of the supply of chemicals.
