Chlorine Institute Honors 15 Plants For Safety, Environmental Excellence

April 4, 2022
Fifteen North American and international chlor-alkali producer, packager and bleach manufacturer facilities earned The Chlorine Institute’s “Diamond Level” status, the highest level of safety and environmental recognition.

A select group of 15 North American and international chlor-alkali producer, packager and bleach manufacturer facilities earn The Chlorine Institute’s (CI) “Diamond Level” status, the highest level of safety and environmental recognition at the Institute’s 2022 Annual Meeting. The recognition is based on 2021 safety and environmental data.

“CI’s safety and environmental recognition program highlights the industry’s ongoing commitment to safety performance and continuous improvement,” says CI President Frank Reiner.  “CI members ‘aim for zero’ – that is zero injuries, incidents and releases.  Diamond Level facilities not only aimed for zero, they achieved it, and their performance serves as benchmarks for the entire industry.”

To earn Diamond Level recognition, facilities must attain zero recordable injuries and zero RQ (reportable quantity) incidents and zero RMP (risk management plan) incidents over a five-year period.  “Diamond Level recognition is the ‘triple crown’ for safety and environmental excellence,” Reiner says.  “By recognizing facilities that successfully ‘aim for zero,’ CI encourages all facilities to set the highest bar for safety and environmental performance, while promoting continuous improvement.”

Reiner adds, “CI’s recognition program reinforces CI’s member safety and security commitment and affirms the importance of the training, instructional pamphlets, videos and other institute resources that enhance safety for members, customers and the entire value chain.”
