Honors cite zero recordables for last three years at two plants
Waukesha, Wis. Oct. 26, 2016 MobleySafway Solutions Corpus Christi branch has earnered two significant safety awards from the Contactors Safety Council of the Coastal Bend and Port Industries of Corpus Christi, for years of incident-free services at two large refineries. MobleySafway, a coatings, insulation, fireproofing and scaffolding firm, has earned two South Texas Industrial Industry Safety Excellence Awards for work at both the Citgo and the LyondellBasell plants.
At Citgo, MobleySafway provides scaffolding, surface prep blasting, and painting services on a year-round continuous basis for the giant East and West oil refineries, which together cover more than 500 acres in Corpus Christi. This represents nearly a million work hours over the last three calendar years (2013-2015) with zero recordable incidents or violations.
At LyondellBasells Corpus Christi chemical plant, MobleySafway provides a range of services related to coatings and prevention of corrosion under insulation and fireproofing, on a sequential project basis and has had a continuous presence there for several years. The plant makes ethylene, propylene and other petrochemical products on a 2,000 acres facility. At the LyondellBasell plant, MobleySafway achieved approximately 215,000 incident-free hours over the last three years.
These awards represent a really great track record. “It feels great to win awards, but it feels even better to know we’ve consistently kept our employees and the workers around them safe over the years,” said Johnny Morin, MobleySafway’s regional environmental health and safety manager.
Asked how his company achieved such impressive results, Morin said, “First, we go by the book. We follow all safety procedures.” He added, “Beyond that, we preach safety every day, throughout the day.”
He noted that one of MobleySafway’s keys to safety success is “building a safety culture from the helpers on up, including having supervisors on site who not only do audits, but also walk through the work sites on a regular basis and get involved.”
The two associations granted the two awards based on OSHA/MSHA logs, a review of three client references, a written synopsis of the contractor’s safety management program, and on-site evaluations of applicants by a team of safety professionals and/or a third party audit.
