JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — CSX Transportation this week presented 65 customers with its annual Chemical Safety Excellence Award for their safe transportation of hazardous materials in 2021.
The Chemical Safety Excellence Awards were presented to customers who shipped at least 600 carloads of hazardous materials with CSX during the year without a release due to controllable factors. The winners, representing a wide range of industry segments, shipped over 185,000 carloads of hazard materials on the CSX last year.
CSX gave special recognition to the global chemical company Kemira, which led all hazard materials shippers with 21 consecutive years as a CSX award winner. Also receiving special recognition were ExxonMobil Chemical Co. and Messer North America, which reached their 10-consecutive-year milestone as award winners; and Americas Styrenics, Ascend Performance Materials, and Shintech, which reached five consecutive years without a non-accidental release.
“CSX understands the commitment required by customers to achieve the Chemical Safety Excellence Award standard, which is why we publicly recognize those who contribute so effectively toward protecting communities and our employees,” Kevin Boone, executive vice president of sales and marketing, said in a statement.
