The Steel Tank Institute/Steel Plate Fabricators Association (STI/SPFA) presented McDermott's storage business, CB&I, with safety awards in three categories during its annual meeting in New Orleans, US.
The association presents safety awards each year to acknowledge the highest achievements of member companies engaged in shop fabrication, inspection, maintenance and field construction. CB&I had multiple operating groups in North America that were recognised in the following categories:
- 2021 Safety Diamond Club Award: fabricators or affiliate members who complete at least 1 million work hours without a recordable incident for the 2021 calendar year.
- 2021 Safety Award of Excellence: member companies whose employees achieved an OSHA Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) of zero for the 2021 calendar year.
- 2021 Safety Award of Achievement: member companies that accomplished a minimum 10% reduction in their OSHA TRIR, with no fatalities, during the 2021 calendar year, as compared with the average TRIR for the three previous years.
"Many of our employees routinely work at heights, bending, fitting, welding and testing thick plates of steel while working on tanks and high-pressure spheres that store liquids and gases at extreme temperatures," said Cesar Canals, Senior Vice President of CB&I. "Performing this work, under these conditions, without a recordable incident is a testament to the unwavering commitment of our team to put safety first in everything we do."
STI/SPFA is a non-profit trade association whose member companies fabricate steel tanks, pipe and pressure vessels for use across various industries.
