Safe handling of rail-shipped hazardous materials awarded

Norfolk Southern Railway has presented its 2016 Thoroughbred Chemical Safety Award to 55 of its customers for their safe handling of rail-shipped hazardous materials, the Class I announced yesterday. The honorees safely shipped 208,503 carloads of chemical products on the railroad’s network last year. NS created the award in 1996 to honour chemicals manufacturers and plants that ship at least 1,000 carloads of hazardous products on the railroad without a single incident during the year. Fifty-two corporations and three plants achieved the standard for 2016, NS officials said in a press release. (ben)
