CSX recognized for 'Responsible Care' protocols
CSX has received the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care Management certification, the Class I announced last week.
The certification was granted to recognize the railroad's health, safety, security and environmental policies and protocols, CSX officials said in a press release.
To qualify for certification, independent auditors examine CSX's public safety, health and environment management system to ensure its effectiveness and compliance with the American Chemistry Council's responsible care standards.
CSX first received the chemistry council's certification more than 20 years ago, said Raghu Chatrathi, senior director of public safety, health and environment for CSX.
"It is a testament to CSX’s longstanding commitment to health, safety, security, environmental sustainability and process excellence in the responsible management of company facilities and shipment of hazardous materials across our network," Chatrathi said.
