Maintaining equipment to avoid emergency situations

Maintenance equals preparedness. That’s what colleagues share repeatedly as they talk about how Shell Puget Sound Refinery staff keeps the site prepared for emergencies.

Ready to respond

Our people are always prepared to respond to an emergency. At any hour of any day, 365 days out of the year there are trained state-certified emergency responders on-site at Shell Puget Sound Refinery.

Tied up in knots: ERT to the rescue

Puget Sound Refinery’s Emergency Response Team plays a critical role for the site, and roughly 130 members serve on the team across rope rescue, medical, fire, hazmat and oil spill response.

Shell operators save a life

A background and training in emergency response paid off when a Shell Puget Sound Refinery operator and two of his co-workers saved the life of a refinery contractor.

The health and safety of our employees, contractors, community and environment are our top priorities as we strive to proudly fuel life in the Pacific Northwest. During Preparedness Month, and every day, the Puget Sound Refinery in-house emergency response teams are ready to respond to an emergency at a moment’s notice. Each team is prepared through training conducted throughout the year which keeps their skills sharp and our equipment in top shape.
