In an industrial chemical business such as ours, in which we deal with large volumes of goods that are flammable, corrosive or harmful, health and safety are key words in our daily work. For us at Sekab, the health and safety of our employees and of the surrounding environment comes first at all times and we work systematically to prevent risks.
At Sekab, we have a protection organisation that works actively to enable us to constantly improve in this area. What is vital to our success is that each employee has knowledge of and commitment to these issues.
Consequently, we continuously train, inform and stimulate our employees to participate in and take personal responsibility for the work around health and safety issues. We have collaboration and dialogue with external stakeholders such as authorities and local residents around these issues.
Sekab is connected to SSG entré – an industry standard for safer working environments in industrial plants. We require that contractors and employees take part in the safety training that is necessary to carry out their work.
An industrial area in close proximity to residential areas places high demands on security. The companies within the Domsjö Industrial Area are constantly working to improve safety and to prevent accidents. This is done in close cooperation with the authorities and Örnsköldsvik’s rescue services.
However, accidents can happen and it is therefore important that the general public, and especially you as a neighbouring resident, are aware of the companies in the industrial area and what can happen in the event of a possible serious accident.

As a manufacturer and distributor of sustainable alternatives to fossil chemical products and propellants, Sekab’s environmental commitment includes, to a very high degree, its own operations and their impact on the environment. It goes without saying that we work according to the environmental management system ISO 14001, but we also go further than the standard requires.
External environmental considerations are always a high priority in our business. As part of our environmental work, we continuously monitor and evaluate our operations from an environmental perspective. This is a natural part of our work in respecting the environment both in and around our facilities.
ISCC plus sustainability certification ensures that the ethanol we use as our raw material in the production of Bioacetaldehyde is sustainable. This certification is issued by the independent agency, International Sustainability & Carbon Certification ISCC, which works for a green and living planet. In practice, the certification means that:
For those of us who are active in the chemical and process industries, it is extremely important that the products we produce meet the requirements in place regarding quality. Much of what we produce is intermediates that our customers process into the final product. Our products must therefore always meet agreed specifications and they must always be delivered on time. Our consistently high quality is the basis for our customers choosing us as a supplier.
Quality thinking is a natural part of the daily work at Sekab for all our employees. We work to ensure this quality through careful planning, control and monitoring of the operations at every stage.
Sekab meets the requirements of the quality management system ISO 9001.
