“We are very proud of our teams in Texas for consistently meeting or exceeding safety standards and environmental performance,” said Paresh Bhakta, Senior Vice President and Chief Integrated Supply Chain Officer. “The annual TCC-ACIT awards recognize the programs we have in place to keep our employees safe and protect the communities in which we operate.”
The Caring for Texas Awards program recognizes continuous improvement by the chemical industry in community awareness, emergency response, security, and environmental stewardship. Nouryon sites that received awards include Houston (Caring for Texas) and Fort Worth (Honorable Mention Excellence in Caring for Texas). Nouryon’s Pasadena and La Porte sites were recognized with Sustained Excellence in Caring for Texas Awards which recognizes company sites that have won the Excellence in Caring for Texas Award at least once in the past three years and provides information about how their sites consistently demonstrate caring for Texas every year.
The Company’s La Porte site was recognized with a Zero Incident Rate Employee Award for having zero employee OSHA recordable injuries or illness. The La Porte, Pasadena, Houston, and Fort Worth sites were each granted with the Zero Incident Rate Contractor Award, which recognizes company sites with zero contractor injuries recorded. The Occupational Safety Distinguished Service Awards recognized Nouryon’s Fort Worth and Pasadena sites for participating in at least three quarterly Occupational Safety Committee or Subcommittee meetings and demonstrating improvement to their injury and illness rates compared to the previous three years.
