Louisiana chemical sites earn safety recognition from LCA


The Louisiana Chemical Association (LCA) announced the annual “Best in Louisiana” SAFE awards recipients at its 2022 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, reports L’Observateur. Recipients of the award are recognized for their outstanding commitment to employee and process safety, as well as environmental stewardship.

The SAFE program, which stands for Serious About Fostering Excellence, is designed to help facilities and organizations evaluate, monitor and continuously improve both environmental performance and process and personnel safety. SAFE is an ongoing program of the Louisiana Chemical Association administered by the LCA Safety & Health Committee.

The SAFE program uses 13 criteria each year to evaluate member performances and present top achievers with either “Best in Louisiana” or “Most Improved” awards in each class. Organizations are divided into four classes based on the number of employees. See the full list of winners.
