Health and Safety Excellence
The safety performance of the CITGO Corpus Christi Refinery is among the best in the nation. For the past 10 years our employees have earned the Merit, Gold and Achievement awards from the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association (NPRA). The refinery also received safety awards from the Coastal Bend Business Roundtable. We dedicate significant resources to employee off-the-job safety and health, and to community safety as well. Our employees participate in leadership roles in the Southern Texas Triangle Association of Occupational Health Nurses, the Coastal Bend Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers, the South Texas Coastal Zone Area Committee, and the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC).
LEPC is dedicated to reducing risk in the community and providing emergency response planning for chemical and hazardous material releases. LEPC operates a Reverse Alert System to notify the community of emergency situations. When an industry official issues a notification through the Reverse Alert System, all community participants receive a text, phone call or email. Participation in LEPC has helped us to create a positive and transparent relationship with our neighbors and community.
