ExxonMobil Wins Top Safety Award
IRVING, Texas -- ExxonMobil Corp. was named the 2013 Green Cross for Safety recipient.
Presented annually by the National Safety Council, the medal honors an organization that has distinguished itself over a period of years for outstanding achievements in workplace safety, community service, environmental stewardship and responsible citizenship.
"We are honored to receive the distinguished award from the National Safety Council," said Rex W. Tillerson, ExxonMobil's chairman and CEO. "ExxonMobil is committed to conducting business in a manner that protects and promotes the safety and health of our employees, those involved with our operations, and the communities where we work."
ExxonMobil has long stood by its safety goal of "nobody gets hurt," the company stated. It believes a capable, committed workplace that utilizes safe, secure and environmentally friendly operations are the keys to meeting that goal.
"Honoring ExxonMobil with the Green Cross for Safety medal is a pleasure," said Janet Froetscher, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. "It is apparent that safety is more than a priority at ExxonMobil and is instead a value that guides every level of the organization on its journey to safety excellence."
The 2013 Green Cross of Safety recipient was first named at the 2012 NSC Congress & Expo in Orlando, Fla. The medal will be officially presented to ExxonMobil at the Green Cross for Safety dinner in April in Houston.
