BP Star Site Wins Another Award

BP Decatur, an OSHA VPP Star facility in Alabama that manufactures naphthalene dicarboxylate, received the first place recognition award from the Manufacture Alabama Safety Conference for outstanding safety performance.

BP Decatur, described in a company news release as the world's only commercial manufacturer of naphthalene dicarboxylate, has been awarded the first-place recognition award from the Manufacture Alabama Safety Conference for outstanding safety performance. The chemical is used in new-generation polyesters and resins to make LCD flat-panel displays, ultra-thin data storage tape, and high-strength tire cord.

More than 800 BP employees and contractors work at the OSHA VPP Star facility, which now has won this recognition award five times in the past decade. "This award is a great accomplishment for the entire site. Our employees truly live our guiding principle of a safe workplace each and every day," Decatur Site Manager Terry Welch said.

The site's OSHA recordable injury rate has decreased by 68 percent since 2001, according to the news release. Amanda Retherford and Jeremy Holmes, safety engineers in BP Decatur's Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) department, accepted the award.
