65 rail customers receive 2021 Chemical Safety Excellence Awards for outstanding contributions to safe hazmat transportation

CSX recently presented 65 customers with its annual Chemical Safety Excellence Award for their outstanding contribution to the safe transportation of hazardous materials in 2021.

The Chemical Safety Excellence Awards were presented to customers who shipped at least 600 carloads of hazardous materials with CSX during the year without a release due to controllable factors, the company said. The winners, representing a wide range of industry segments, shipped more than 185,000 carloads of hazard materials on the CSX network in 2021.

“CSX understands the commitment required by customers to achieve the Chemical Safety Excellence Award standard, which is why we publicly recognize those who contribute so effectively toward protecting communities and our employees,” said Kevin Boone, executive vice president of Sales and Marketing. “As an industry safety leader, CSX seeks to promote safety excellence not just within our company, but with all of our business partners and in all of our communities.”
