The MOU recognizes that the associations' mutual programs work to reduce incidents and improve performance in EHS&S, and that sharing of information and best practices brings value to both associations and ultimately has a positive impact on the global marketplace.

Enhancing relationships across international borders helps raise the bar for product management and improved performance both in the United States and Mexico."
