Houston, TX – Earlier today, the American Petroleum Institute awarded Shell Pipeline Company LP (SPLC) the Occupational Safety Performance Award for Large Operators Pipeline at its annual Conference & Cybernetics Symposium in Carlsbad, CA.
“There is nothing more important than the safety of people – our employees, contractors and our neighbors near where we operate,” stated Greg Smith, General Manager of Operations. “We are honored to receive this award. Safety is a core value at Shell and we will continue to work toward an even stronger safety record in the future.”
The award is given to the company that has the lowest Occupational Safety and Health Administration Total Recordable Incident Rate. This year, SPLC had a rate of 0.11. To be eligible, a company must meet various API-set guidelines including no fatalities, no hospitalizations of the public and well-documented and thorough contractor safety requirements.
