Safety

Safety is a CITGO core value that shapes our daily decisions at every level.

Our visionary goal of zero injuries, illnesses, and incidents is known as Operational Excellence.

The CITGO Safety Culture

To reach our vision of zero incidents, CITGO established a safety culture focused on delivering superior performance along with a commitment to safe workplaces for ourselves, our families and our communities. CITGO team members are:

 

Informed

They collect and analyze relevant data to stay informed of HSE performance and trends.

Reporting

They are confident to report HSE concerns without fear of blame.

Learning

They learn from opportunities and make changes to eliminate or minimize risks.

Flexible

They are able to adjust our path, while remaining focused when faced with a dynamic and demanding task environment.

Committed

They understand the boundary between behaviors considered acceptable (safe) and unacceptable (at risk) and act accordingly even when no one is watching.

Action-Oriented

They are empowered to intervene during day-to-day activities whenever HSE requirements may not be clearly met and support each other in our obligation to Stop Work when risk is considered unacceptable.

10 Life-Critical Safety Rules

These rules enhance our safety performance and are specifically focused on reducing risks of serious incidents while performing critical activities. They are based on our health and safety standards and are a powerful tool to communicate critical requirements to our employees and contractors.

Every employee and contractor is required to learn all 10 rules, use them every day, and make them a regular part of our safety dialogue.

Safety Awards & Highlights

An incident-free workplace is achievable and expected.
