US safety council awards rotating equipment supplier Dresser-Rand
Dresser-Rand, a global supplier of rotating equipment solutions to the oil, gas, petrochemical, power, and process industries, has been honored by the National Safety Council (NSC) with a 2014 Industry Leader Award for its safety performance.
A component of the Councils member-exclusive Safety Motivation and Recognition Awards Program, which benchmarks outstanding safety achievements, the award recognizes the top 5% of member companies, units and facilities that have met the criteria and qualified for the 2014 Occupational Excellence Achievement Award from the NSC.
Winners are selected based on North American industry classification system code, lowest total incidence rate and employee work hours.
This recognition from the National Safety Council reaffirms our commitment to achieve operational excellence and zero injuries, said Michael Wood, Dresser-Rands chief safety officer. We have a culture at Dresser-Rand where together we hold safety discussions with our employees to ensure that we minimize at-risk behaviors and watch each others back. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate workplace injuries by executing disciplined processes and engaging our employees.
The Dresser-Rand gas engine technology center, located in Fort Collins, Colorado, also will receive a safety award from the NSC during an awards ceremony being held in San Diego, California, in September.
In 2013, Dresser-Rand was selected as one of Americas Safest Companies by EHS Today magazine. It also won the 2013 Southwest and the 2013 Gulf Coast Oil & Gas Awards for health and safety excellence.
