The Safety Committee played a lead role in inviting a respected safety expert and member of the BP North American Refineries Independent Safety Panel, chaired by former United States Secretary of State James Baker, to speak to the CAC and Flint Hills Resources Pine Bend Refinery leadership. The refinery is actively using the industry knowledge shared at this session in its ongoing efforts to be a top performer in refinery health and safety.
In addition, the Safety Committee oversees:
- Review of safety concerns and hazards happening at other refineries, learning about Flint Hills Resources’ award winning safety programs and discussing with the refinery proactive steps to reduce the risk for accidents;
- Analysis and deciphering of various safety, security and health reports from Flint Hills Resources, including the refinery’s fire department, paramedic team, railroad safety efforts and general recordable safety incident data.
