Shell Deer Park invests in the latest technology and makes improvements in operating procedures and training programs so it reduces its footprint and achieves continuous improvement in environmental performance. The site designs, builds, operates and maintains process units and other pieces of equipment so they protect the safety of employees, contractors, vendors and members of the community. Both the refinery and chemical plant have earned The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001 certification for their environmental management systems.

Protecting the health, safety and security of everyone at the Shell Deer Park complex – in addition to our community neighbors – remains our highest priority. Employees share a common belief that the site can prevent all accidents, occupational illness and personal injuries through the commitment of the entire workforce. Shell Deer Park provides 24-hour emergency response as well as ongoing programs to verify that we meet or exceed all required regulatory and company standards.
