People Safety

Safety is, and always will be, our number one priority. We encourage all employees and contractors to maintain a diligent focus.

We prioritize effective project planning, adherence to all operating procedures, recognition of potential hazards, proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and personal accountability. We use a number of leading indicators at all of our sites, including a focus on near-miss identification and reporting so we can prevent more serious injuries from happening in the future. While our total recordable incident rate (TRIR) is significantly below the chemical industry average in the United States, we continue to focus on cultural and leadership assessments as well as priority site reviews. We use the definition of recordable incident established by the United States Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).
