In 2018, BrandSafway earned the Contractor Safety Achievement award for 19 sites.
The AFPM awards program promotes safe work practices and accident prevention in the 117 refineries and more than 230 petrochemical manufacturing facilities the association represents. The award recognizes maintenance contractors working a minimum of 20,000 hours per calendar year at a regular AFPM-member facility with no major workplace-related injuries, while exemplifying strong and consistent safety processes. The AFPM Safety Awards are part of a comprehensive program developed by the association’s Safety & Health Committee, and awards are presented to facilities and contractors who promote accident prevention. Qualifications for awards are based on records from the OSHA 300A Summary and API 754 Process Safety Collection.
BrandSafway will be honored on Thursday, April 25, at the Safety Awards Event during the 2019 National Occupational & Process Safety Conference and Exhibition in Grapevine, Texas.
