The company, an independent subsidiary of Wichita, Kan.-based Koch Industries Inc., employs 52 people in Corpus Christi who operate and maintain 1,600 miles of pipeline. The facility transports refined petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel from the Flint Hills Resources Corpus Christi Refinery to distribution terminals.

"Koch Pipeline Southern Operating Group has demonstrated excellence in effective safety and health management," said OSHA Regional Administrator Dean W. McDaniel in Dallas. "Its management's and employees' outstanding efforts include maintaining an injury and illness rate 81 percent below the national average for the industry."

More than 1,860 worksites nationwide have earned entry into OSHA's VPP. Requirements include a high degree of management support and employee involvement; a high-quality worksite hazard analysis; prevention and control programs; and comprehensive safety and health training for all employees. Each of these elements must be effective, in place, and in operation for at least one year before a company can apply to join the VPP.
