The challenge

Axiall Corporation is a leading integrated chemicals and building products company. Headquartered in Atlanta, the company has manufacturing facilities located throughout North America and in Asia. Born out of the merging of Georgia Gulf and the commodities chemicals division of PPG Industries, Axiall had to integrate two companies’ environment, health & safety (EH&S) business processes, consolidate 70 legacy applications into one platform, and align a distributed management team around a single system.

The solution

Starting with the Incident Management System (IMS) and Action Plans (AP), Axiall retired the legacy systems that housed action plans and events for environmental releases or injuries. Axiall then implemented the Management of Change (MOC) application to consolidate data from other legacy systems.

The results

This far-reaching project came in on-time and under budget due to the efforts of a highly engaged team. The streamlined data management system is already increasing efficiency. Now, employees can go to a single platform to view all of their action plans and other activities. The company is experiencing improvements across the board in compliance, performance and overall productivity.
