职业健康和安全

我们继续追求在职业健康和安全方面达到卓越,以更好地保护我们的员工、承包商、邻近企业和环境,使其远离危险。

人员安全

安全是且永远是我们的头等大事。我们鼓励所有员工和承包商保持勤勉专注。

我们优先考虑有效的项目规划、对所有操作程序的遵守情况、潜在危险的发现、个人防护装备 (PPE) 和个人问责制的正确使用。我们在所有厂区使用大量先行指标,包括关注未遂事件的确定和报告,以便我们能够防止以后发生更严重的损害。尽管我们的总可记录事故率 (TRIR) 明显低于美国的化学行业平均水平,但我们仍然继续重视文化和领导能力评估以及优先考虑的厂区审查。我们使用美国职业安全&与健康管理局 (OSHA) 确定的可记录事故的定义。



Process Safety

Process Safety EventsIn 2018, we undertook a project to refresh our approach to process safety management so that we may better track our performance and identify opportunities for improvement in our program. In accordance with this effort, we have revisited and updated our approach for how we categorize Tier 1 and Tier 2 process safety events to ensure we report such events as accurately and transparently as possible. Previously, these classifications were considered only for incidents that were reported according to our internal definitions for environmental nonconformances, recordable injuries or significant process safety events. However, we realized a more thorough and accurate approach should also take into account other process safety events that were less significant than those originally considered, which resulted in updates to the historical Tier 1 and Tier 2 classifications.  

Last year, we experienced three Tier 1 events and 10 Tier 2 events. The Tier 1 events included a material release from a relief valve, a release within a process area and a process fire. There were no injuries as a result of these events. The majority of Tier 2 events were related to incidents including chemical releases, most of which were captured within secondary containment, minimizing the impact to the environment. To provide an additional level of focus in our process safety management program, we introduced a series of leading performance indicators that we believe will help us prevent future incidents. These indicators track on-time completion of our process hazard analysis plans as well as closure of corrective actions from events and process safety audits.
