LyondellBasell Clinton Complex Presented with Innovation Award
CLINTON, IA. – May 4, 2021 – Employees and contractors of the LyondellBasell Clinton Complex are still basking in the excitement of receiving the first-ever Innovation Award presented by the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM).
The Innovation Award recognizes petrochemical facilities that have unique and innovative programs or practices that effectively improve the site’s safety performance for either occupational or process safety. LyondellBasell’s Clinton Complex was chosen as an inaugural recipient, along with four other facilities in the United States.
Understanding the continuous need to improve their processes and build margin around safety, the Clinton Complex developed “Chalk Talk.” Adding 32 hours of additional training for new hires around life-critical procedures, the Clinton team created a panel of experienced employees that review and challenge new hire’s understanding of safety procedures.
“We are always looking for creative solutions and strategies to keep our employees and contractors safe,” said Yari Hernadez, Site Manager, Clinton Complex. “This award reflects our continued commitment to a culture which drives safety first, task after task.” Other LyondellBasell facilities were recognized with the AFPM Elite Gold Safety Award this week, including Chocolate Bayou Polymers Plant, Corpus Christi Operations, Matagorda Complex, Victoria Plant (Texas) and Tuscola Plant (Illinois).
