Abstract

The chemical industry is a fundamental component of how countries function. Despite its importance, less consideration has seemingly been given to the roles of safety in sustainable production. This paper reports an ongoing study to scrutinize the relationship between safety performance and sustainable production performance. The underlying foundation of the empirical study is a conceptual framework developed from a Systematic Literature Review (SLR). Five propositions from the conceptual framework would be verified with practitioners in the industry. Nine companies were interviewed, and cross-case analysis was then performed. Preliminary findings suggested that out of the five propositions from the framework, the first three are found consistent with the framework, hence the extant literature. Our future work will continue to corroborate the other two propositions.
