70 companies earn 2021 Pinnacle Awards for dedication, commitment to safe transportation of chemicals by rail

Union Pacific Railroad recently recognized 70 companies with 2021 Pinnacle Awards for their dedication and commitment to safely transporting chemicals by rail.

The annual award honors customers who implement release prevention protocols and corrective action plans, and have zero non-accident releases (NARs) of regulated hazardous materials shipments, the railroad said.

“Union Pacific is honored to partner with companies that share our commitment to the safe transportation of chemicals and, in the process, the protection of the environment,” said Jacque Bendon, vice president of industrial marketing and sales. “This award recognizes the work these companies do every single day to prevent releases and safeguard the communities where we all live and work.”

Union Pacific’s Hazardous Materials Safety team supports customers with joint rail safety training programs and rail car inspections.
