Flint Hills Resources’ nearly 1,000 employees are celebrating working safely, surpassing 200 days without an Occupational Safety and Health Administration recordable injury in the past six months.
“In our business, personal and process safety have to be top priorities. This impressive number wasn’t by chance or accident, it required commitment and dedication from every employee to work safe on a daily basis,” said Phil Gaarder, vice president and manufacturing manager for Flint Hills Resources Corpus Christi. “We have been proactive and implemented some new measures including work permit auditing and hazard recognition and mitigation to help reduce the number of possible workplace injuries. I’m very proud of this team.”
On Dec. 23, 2011, employees extended their string of consecutive days without a lost-time injury to 11 years (more than 4,017 days). That continues today with 4,135 days with no LTIs.
