Chlorine Institute Recognizes 21 North American and International Facilities for “Diamond Level” Safety and Environmental Performance

Arlington, VA – (NewMediaWire) – March 24, 2021 – A select group of twenty-one North
American and international chlor-alkali producer, packager, and bleach
manufacturer facilities earned The Chlorine Institute’s (CI) “Diamond Level”
status, the highest level of safety and environmental recognition at the
Institute’s 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting.  

“The presentation of the 2020
Performance Recognition Honorees comes with an extra level of praise this year,
as these facilities not only achieved zero incidents and injuries in 2020, but
they were also able to overcome additional challenges presented by the pandemic
and economic downturn,” said CI Vice President of Health, Environment, Safety,
and Security, Robyn Brooks.  “These 21 member facilities were able to
persist even through the toughest of challenges and achieve at least five years
without an OSHA recordable injury or reportable quantity release and thus,
achieve Diamond Level Recognition status.”   The recognition is based
on 2020 safety and environmental data, and a complete list of the recipients is
below.

To earn Diamond Level recognition,
facilities must attain zero recordable injuries and zero RQ
(reportable quantity) incidents and zero RMP (Risk Management
Plan) incidents in their chlor-alkali operations over a consecutive five-year
period.  “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 in 2021, and beyond,” added
Brooks.

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.  Visit us online at:
