CN honors 109 chemical shippers' safety efforts


On Friday, CN announced that 109 chemical shippers will receive its Safe Handling Award for 2011.

Launched in 1992, the award recognizes shippers’ efforts to adhere to strict safe-handling standards by properly managing and loading hazardous materials. Winners must meet established criteria according to the total number of haz-mat shipments for all their facilities.

The award is an integral part of the Responsible Care® Program, an ongoing performance improvement initiative in which CN is a partner both in Canada and the United States, said Keith Creel, CN's executive vice president and chief operating officer, in a prepared statement.

“The safety of our operations is of the utmost importance to CN, and our customers play an important role in ensuring the safety of our employees, communities, and the environment,” he said.
