Phillips 66 recently received two awards for the safe transportation of hazardous materials by rail during 2022: the Stewardship Award from BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) and the Chemical Safety Excellence Award from CSX Corporation.
The Stewardship Award recognizes companies that safely transport a minimum of 500 loaded tank cars of hazardous materials with zero non-accidental releases. Phillips 66 safely shipped over 20,000 railcars of hazardous material on BNSF in 2022. This is the fourth year Phillips 66 has won this award.
“Our logistics teams and facilities are dedicated to operational excellence and safety when moving product to and from our refineries,” said Kim Head, VP, Global Supply Chain & Logistics. “These awards are a testament to the collaboration, hard work and commitment to our company values by our teams across the various business units.”
The Chemical Safety Excellence Award recognizes companies who ship more than 600 carloads of hazardous materials or hazardous waste without experiencing a non-accident release during the entire year. Phillips 66 safely shipped over 4,400 railcars of hazardous material on CSX in 2022. This is the fourth consecutive year Phillips 66 has received the CSX award.
“Safety is our top priority,” said Anil Nath, Manager, Rail Transportation. “We ship a wide range of Petroleum and Chemical products on rail. Our goal is to do everything in our control as a team to safely ship product, so it’s an honor to be recognized by our rail partners for all our safety efforts.”
Phillips 66 also won the Non Accident Release (NAR) Safety Award from Kansas City Southern and the Safe Shipper Award from Canadian Pacific Railway, for zero non-accidental releases in 2022 earlier this year.
