The BASF Whitehouse, Ohio, site has received the Eagle Award for Excellence for its exceptional performance in environmental, health, safety and security from the Ohio Chemistry Technology Council (OCTC) at its 38th annual conference in Columbus, Ohio.

“Safety is a key pillar of BASF,” said Paul Marshall, BASF technical director. “Winning this award validates the commitment BASF has to the safety and health of our employees and community.”

BASF Laboratory Technician Elaine Colyer, who works in the color lab, created a new ergonomic assessment tool for lab employees. Colyer’s dedication to improving ergonomics was a key reason for the award.

In addition to the Whitehouse site receiving an award, long-time BASF employee Karl Schnapp, recently retired manager of Site/Administrative Services, received a special Eagle Award for Distinguished Service honoring his more than 20 years of dedicated service to the OCTC.

“Through Karl’s leadership, OCTC has become the key advocacy group for the chemical industry in Ohio,” said Jennifer Klein, president of OCTC. “He helped shape OCTC into the robust, vibrant organization it is today. We honor him for his dedication to BASF and the chemical industry.”
