State Officials Visit Shell, Tour Refinery

We are very proud to have hosted some of the state’s top safety officials at the refinery today including the Chief of Cal-OSHA and the Director of the Department of Industrial Relations.

The safety of our workers and the community is our top priority, and this was a great opportunity to have a discussion and tour with Christine Baker, Ellen Widess and Amy Coombes.  We thank them for their time, and we are grateful to all of the outstanding men and women of Shell who work diligently toward the goal of everyone going home safely every single day.
