Commitment to safe transports bears fruit
Union Pacific (UP) in the USA has recognised 46 companies with its distinguished Pinnacle Award for their dedication to safely transporting chemical products by rail.
The annual award honours customers who implement release prevention protocols, corrective action plans and have zero non-accident releases of regulated hazardous materials shipments.
"Union Pacific is committed to delivering chemical shipments in the safest manner,” said Kenny Rocker, UP’s executive vice president. The US class I railroad’s hazardous materials safety team supports customers with joint rail safety training programmes and railcar inspections. (ben)
