Nouryon receives several awards from Texas Chemical Council and the Association of Chemical Industry of Texas for safety and environmental stewardship.

Nouryon, a global specialty chemicals producer, recently earned 13 Texas Chemical Council and Association of Chemical Industry of Texas awards, including the Caring for Texas award. The honors recognize member companies for excellent safety performance.

The Caring for Texas awards program identifies continuous improvement by the chemical industry in community awareness, emergency response, security and environmental stewardship. Nouryon sites that received awards include Houston (Caring for Texas) and Fort Worth (Honorable Mention Excellence in Caring for Texas). The company’s Pasadena and La Porte sites earned the Sustained Excellence in Caring for Texas award, which recognizes sites that have won the Excellence in Caring for Texas distinction at least once in the past three years.

The La Porte site also was recognized with a Zero Incident Rate Employee Award for having zero employee OSHA-recordable injuries or illnesses. The La Porte, Pasadena, Houston and Fort Worth sites each received the Zero Incident Rate Contractor Award for company sites with zero contractor injuries recorded. The Occupational Safety Distinguished Service Awards recognized the Fort Worth and Pasadena sites for participating in at least three quarterly Occupational Safety Committee or Subcommittee meetings and demonstrating improvement in their injury and illness rates compared to the previous three years.

Recipients of the Sam Mannan Award for Zero Process Safety Incidents included the Fort Worth and Houston sites. The award recognizes company sites with no Tier 1 or Tier 2 incidents. Sam Mannan was a professor of chemical engineering at Texas A&M University. He was also the director of the Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and served as the subject matter expert for Chemical Processing’s process safety webinar series until his death in September 2018.
