Certificates of Honor recognize facilities that experienced zero fatalities, zero cases resulting in days away from work, and zero job transfer or restriction cases among employees, according to current Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines. Huntsman's manufacturing sites in McIntosh, Alabama, and Freeport, Texas, earned Certificates of Honor.
Certificates of Excellence recognize the same among both employees and contractors. Huntsman's R&D locations in The Woodlands, Texas (Huntsman Advanced Technology Center) and Auburn Hills, Michigan, as well as production sites in East Lansing, Michigan, and Charlotte, North Carolina, received Certificates of Excellence.
