Chlorine Institute Honors Top Safety Performers

April 1, 2020
The Chlorine Institute recognizes 15 North American and international facilities for “Diamond Level” safety and environmental performance.

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. To earn Diamond Level recognition, facilities must attain zero recordable injuries, zero RQ (reportable quantity) incidents and zero RMP (Risk Management Plan) incidents over a five-year period. The recognition is based on 2019 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.”

Reiner continues, “Diamond Level recognition is the ‘triple crown’ for safety and environmental excellence. 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 concludes, “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.”

The Chlorine Institute exists to support the chlor-alkali industry in advancing safe, secure, environmentally compatible and sustainable production, distribution and use of its mission chemicals: chlorine, sodium and potassium hydroxides, sodium hypochlorite, the distribution of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) and the distribution and use of hydrogen chloride.
