CSX names 2022 Chemical Safety Excellence winners


CSX last week announced the winners of its 29th annual Chemical Safety Excellence Awards, which recognize shippers for outstanding contribution to the safe transportation of hazardous materials.

The Chemical Safety Excellence Awards were presented to customers who shipped at least 600 carloads of hazardous materials with CSX during 2022 without a release due to controllable factors. The winners, representing a wide range of industry segments, shipped a combined total of more than 175,000 carloads of hazard materials on CSX's network during the previous calendar year.

CSX presented special recognition awards to seven companies that achieved milestones of five, 10 and 15 years without an accidental release of hazardous materials shipped on CSX.

Multiyear recognition award winners included:
• 15 Years: Occidental Chemical;
• 10 Years: Green Plains, Plains All American and SABIC; and
• Five Years: Crestwood Services, Synagro Rail (EPIC) and Suncor Energy.

"The unrelenting safety efforts of the CSX Chemical Safety Excellence Award winners, combined with proven safety advantages of rail transportation, contribute to a sustainable supply chain that protects communities and employees,” said Kevin Boone, executive vice president of sales and marketing, in a press release.
