Linde Plants Receive Safety Award, Responsible Care Certification

Linde North America’s carbon dioxide plant in Corpus Christi, Texas, received a safety award from Contractor Safety Council of the Coastal Bend, Inc.
 
The 2008 safety award was presented to Linde’s Corpus Christi plant for having an OSHA safety record of less than one accident and no lost time recordable for the entire year. The purpose of the award is to recognize and promote safety and awareness by chemical companies in the area for the care and safety of employees and communities.

David Henao, area supply manager, said, “The plant team and I are truly honored and proud to receive this award. It recognizes our day-to-day safety efforts and our total commitment to the safety of our employees and our customers.”

Another Texas-based Linde plant also received honors. Linde's Terrell, Texas, air separation plant received certification under the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care program.
 
Last year, Linde began the certification process with its headquarters facility in Murray Hill, N.J. During 2008, the company also completed certification of eight of its production plants located throughout the U.S. The Terrell plant is the third of four locations scheduled for certification in 2009 in order to satisfy the ACC’s requirement for membership. The Linde plants in Delta, Ohio, and Price, Utah, received certification earlier this year.
 
The Responsible Care management system offers an integrated, structured approach for driving continual improvement in seven key areas: community awareness and emergency response; security; distribution; employee health and safety; pollution prevention; process safety; and product stewardship.
 
Warren Arenz, head of safety, health, environment and quality for Linde North America, said, “The Terrell plant achieved what is considered a perfect score under the ACC Responsible Care Program. The employees worked very hard to achieve this recognition, which falls right in line with our goals as a high performance organization and our vision to be the leading gases and engineering company. I congratulate them on the great job they did and are continuing to do.”
