NSC Announces Robert W. Campbell Award Recipients
At the NSC 2008 Opening Session on Sept. 22, the National Safety Council presented the 2008 Robert W. Campbell Award to Fluor Hanford and Gulf Petrochemical Industries Co.(GPIC)
Co-sponsored by Exxon Mobil Corp., the award recognizes organizations that demonstrate how integration of environmental, health, and safety management into business operations is a cornerstone of their corporate business.
“It is readily apparent that senior management at both companies value the safety and health of their employees as much as they value productivity. Fluor Hanford and GPIC embrace EHS as a core value,” said Janet Froetscher, NSC President & CEO, who presented the award. “We applaud Fluor Hanford and GPIC for their demonstrated commitment to EHS as if affects their business performance and sustainability, and their employees’ lives both at work and off the job.”
Fluor Hanford received the award for corporations with more than 1,000 employees and GPIC received the award for corporations with up to 1,000 employees.
Fluor Hanford is a business unit of Fluor Corp., which was established in 1996 to manage environmental remediation activities at the Department of Energy’s Hanford Nuclear Reservation in southeastern Washington State. The company employs 3,600 people engaged in dismantling former nuclear-processing facilities.
Founded in 1979, GPIC is the first Arabian (Persian) Gulf Cooperation Council’s venture to establish a petrochemical industry in the Kingdom of Bahrain. GPIC began production in 1985 and today relies upon 522 employees and 200-300 contractors during normal working conditions.
