A few examples of our commitment to Environment, Health and Safety excellence include:
At CVR Partners, compliance with laws and regulations are a top priority. That's why we've voluntarily made a significant investment in compliance assurance programs for all of our facilities. These programs target consistent and reliable processes and procedures to assist in our compliance efforts. Investing in these programs is not required of us, but we want to do it because it is the right way to run our business, and the right way to take care of our communities.
CVR Partners believes in maintaining meaningful relationships in the communities in which we live and work. One way we connect with our neighbors in Coffeyville is through a Community Advisory Panel, which consists of company and civic leaders, as well as educators, residents and business owners. We meet regularly to encourage two-way communication with our neighbors about our operations and progress.
Our nitrogen fertilizer employees continue to excel in personal safety in the workplace. They have a “no-complacency” attitude and focus on taking preventative measures every day. Our managers and employees hold daily safety meetings and share best practices information across the company. Their focus on safety excellence helped them reach safety milestones in 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2015 with employees having zero days away from work caused by an accident — a tremendous accomplishment in a coke gasification nitrogen fertilizer facility.
At CVR Partners, we are proud of the measures we take to improve our Environment, Health and Safety performance, as well as our belief that environmental and safety excellence is a large part of our business practices.
