  • 438 Safety Committee Suggestions
  • 414 Management of Change reviews conducted
  • 51 Process Hazard Analysis Recommendations completed

“We all should take extreme pride in reaching this milestone,” said RIS General Manager Neil Gorman. “Great things happen when we follow procedure, effectively communicate, focus on training, conduct drills, get involved and engaged in our many robust safety programs, reinvest back into the plant and have a hard-working, action-oriented EHS department. Congratulations to all on this wonderful safety accomplishment.”
