For the sixth consecutive year, the CITGO Petroleum Corp. is the recipient of the American Petroleum Institute’s Occupational Safety Performance Award in the small operator category.
This award is among the industry’s top recognitions and is reserved for companies that demonstrate excellence in safety. It is presented to companies with the lowest Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable injury and illness incident rates for employees and contractors.
CITGO Petroleum Corp. also received API’s 2014 Pipeline Environmental Performance Award, recognizing the company’s outstanding environmental performance last year.
“At CITGO, we strive to create a consistently safe work environment for every employee and contractor working in our operations. Safety and environmental stewardship are part of our culture and we are proud to be recognized for our unyielding commitment to performance excellence,” said Nelson P. Martinez, CITGO president and CEO.
The awards were recently presented at the American Petroleum Institute (API) Pipeline Conference in Savannah, Georgia.Tags: American Petroleum Institute, API, awards, CITGO Petroleum Corp, safety award
