HEALTH AND SAFETY

Community Interaction

TransMontaigne works closely with public officials and emergency responders including police, fire departments and public health professionals.  This involves public meetings to address pipeline safety, emergency response drills and emergency preparedness reviews.

Response Drills

TransMontaigne holds annual emergency response drills to evaluate our abilities to respond to an emergency.  This includes local drills at our facilities as well as joint drills that involve public officials, police, fire, Coast Guard and Homeland Security joint efforts.

Training

TransMontaigne provides continuous Hazwoper training to all engineering and operations employees.  This provides our employees the ability to safely respond to an emergency situation and take immediate action in the event of a spill or release.

Safety Policy

The protection of the health and safety of our employees, customers, contractors, and the communities in which we live and operate is an integral part of TransMontaigne’s operating practices.  We are fully committed to providing a safe, incident-free workplace.  It is our policy to operate our facilities so that we comply with or exceed applicable health and safety rules and regulations.  We strive to follow the best and most prudent industry practices.

TransMontaigne seeks to improve the health and safety of our workplace through employee training, understanding of modern safe work practices, and industry developments.

While comprehensive programs are fundamental to this goal, the ultimate responsibility for a safe workplace rests with each employee.  TransMontaigne holds employees accountable for safe work practices, and encourages proactive involvement and suggestions for continuous improvement.
