“CI’s safety and environmental recognition program highlights the industry’s ongoing commitment to safety performance and continuous improvement,” said CI President Frank Reiner.  “CI members ‘Aim for Zero,’ that is zero injuries, incidents and releases.  Diamond Level facilities not only aimed for zero, they achieved it, and their performance serves as benchmarks for the entire industry.” The recognition is based on 2018 safety and environmental data, and a complete list of the recipients is attached.

To earn Diamond Level recognition, facilities must attain zero recordable injuries and zero RQ (reportable quantity) incidents and zero RMP (Risk Management Plan) incidents over a five-year period.  “Diamond Level recognition is the ‘Triple Crown’ for safety and environmental excellence,” Mr. Reiner said.  “By recognizing facilities that successfully ‘Aim for Zero,’ CI encourages all facilities to set the highest bar for safety and environmental performance, while promoting continuous improvement.”

Mr. Reiner concluded, “CI’s recognition program reinforces CI’s Member Safety and Security Commitment and affirms the importance of the training, instructional pamphlets, videos and other Institute resources that enhance safety for members, customers and the entire value chain.”
