Driver Pipeline, one of the country’s most successful pipeline construction companies, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, announced that Dow Chemical Company has honored Driver Pipeline with their “Safety Excellence Award” for 2012. This award is given to companies who have worked more than 50K man-hours during the year, have maintained an OSHA rate of less than .21 (Driver’s rate is 0.0), who have helped contribute to Texas Operations overall Safety Performance, and who are top performers in Dow’s Safety and Site Work process during the year. This award was given to only 21 out of over 225 companies that work at Dow TXOPS.
Driver Pipeline thanked the entire Driver/Dow team for the Award. “We appreciate everyone’s focus and commitment to safety.” “We especially thank our friends at Dow who provide this recognition. Other customers talk Safety, but Dow lives it and actively supports it, which is greatly appreciated.”
In addition to the Safety in Excellence Award, Driver Pipeline Company Inc. also received Dow Chemical’s “2012 Best in Class” award. This award is given to companies who have worked more than 50K man hours during the year, have maintained an OSHA rate of less than .21 for four consecutive years (Driver’s rate is 0.0), who have helped contribute to Dow’s overall Safety Performance for those 4 consecutive years, and who have been top performers in Dow’s Safety and Site Work Process during the year. This award was given to only 11 out of the more than 225 companies that work with Dow.
Driver Pipeline’s Safety Team Member Dan Todd said, “These awards are a testament to the commitment that Driver Pipeline has for the Safety of each and every individual in the organization. The most important thing we do each day is send our people home safe and healthy to their friends and families. In today’s industrial environment, no company achievement speaks more highly of the company than does their Safety Performance. This kind of Safety Performance cannot be achieved unless the company is committed to Safety from the top to the bottom.”
