Nalco Receives Transportation Safety Award from Union Pacific Railroad

Nalco Company was named as a recipient of Union Pacific Railroad's annual Pinnacle Awards.

Union Pacific Railroad named 79 companies as annual Pinnacle Award recipients for chemical transportation safety. The award annually recognizes Union Pacific customers that implemented successful prevention and corrective plans and achieved a rate of zero non-accident releases (NARs) for shipments of regulated hazardous materials.

The award program, which began in 1996, is open to all Union Pacific chemical and petrochemical customers. Criteria include safe-loading techniques, securement of shipments and zero NARs. A non-accident release is an unintentional release of hazardous material during transportation not caused by an accident or train derailment. NARs consist of leaks, splashes and other releases from improperly secured or defective valves, fittings and tank shells, and also include improper venting from safety relief devices.
