Eric Van Tol
Vice President of Environmental, Health, Safety & Sustainability
Eric M. Van Tol, MS, CIH®, CSP®, is currently the Vice President of EHSS for Cyanco. Eric joins us after a long-tenured career at Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, where he held a variety of leadership positions and effectively implemented both global and regional EHSS programs with world-class results. Eric’s most significant achievement was bringing OSHA Voluntary Protection Program Star Status to the Pasadena Plastics Complex (Formerly Houston Chemical Process). This site was the site that changed the course of EHSS history in 1989 when an explosion occurred killing 23 workers. From this event, OSHA promulgated the Process Safety Standard. Decades later, under Eric’s leadership, he and his team were able to get Union Leadership and Management to move forward in obtaining this most historic OSHA VPP certification.
Eric is a Certified Industrial Hygienist® and a Certified Safety Professional® (CSP®), has two master’s degrees, one in Industrial Hygiene and the other in Biology, and has nearly 30 years professional experience. Eric lives in The Woodlands, Texas with his wife Britney, and his triplet sons, Aaron, Jacob and Evan
