The Steel Tank Institute/Steel Plate Fabricators Association (STI/SPFA) presented McDermott’s storage business, CB&I, with safety awards in three categories during its annual meeting in New Orleans, LA.

STI/SPFA, a non-profit trade association whose member companies fabricate steel tanks, pipe and pressure vessels for use across various industries, presents safety awards each year to acknowledge the highest achievements of member companies engaged in shop fabrication, inspection, maintenance and field construction. CB&I operating groups in North America were recognised in the following categories: –

  • 2021 Safety Diamond Club Award: Fabricators or affiliate members who complete at least one million work hours without a recordable incident for the 2021 calendar year.
  • 2021 Safety Award of Excellence: Member companies whose employees achieved an OSHA Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) of zero for the 2021 calendar year.
  • 2021 Safety Award of Achievement: Member companies that accomplished a minimum ten percent reduction in their OSHA TRIR, with no fatalities, during the 2021 calendar year, as compared with the average TRIR for the three previous years.

‘Many of our employees routinely work at heights, bending, fitting, welding and testing thick plates of steel while working on tanks and high pressure spheres that store liquids and gases at extreme temperatures,’ says Cesar Canals, senior vice president of CB&I. ‘Performing this work, under these conditions, without a recordable incident is a testament to the unwavering commitment of our team to put safety first in everything we do.’

CB&I was also presented with two Field-Erected Tank of the Year awards by the STI/SPFA at the same meeting.
