Smaller facilities can face unique environmental, health and safety challenges. At UTC, we’re proud to have our employees work at facilities like Pratt & Whitney’s Amercon site, the recipient of the 2012 Small Site EH&S Excellence Award. 

The award recognizes a regional or individual location that either demonstrates significant improvement in or sustained excellence in EH&S Management. This year, Pratt & Whitney’s Amercon site met both of those goals, installing process control measures which increased safety and reduced water consumption by 41 percent, total industrial process waste by 11 percent and non-recycled waste by 89 percent. The Amercon facility has also experienced a 97 percent increase in business since 2008, proving that its efforts are reducing the environmental footprint and increasing overall efficiency. 

The Amercon site’s marked and sustained improvements in EH&S performance and culture, strong and innovative employee engagement, and the use of ACE and EH&S tools across the facility serves as an example of EH&S excellence across our company.​​​​​​​​​​​​
