Posted by EHS Insight Staff on Jul 26, 2017 2:03:41 PM

Chevron and the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) have reached an agreement to improve safety processes at the Chevron Richmond refinery.

In addition to the fines proposed by Cal/OSHA, Chevron will pay an estimated $20M to reduce safety risk and ensure process safety at its refinery.

“The settlement requires Chevron to exceed current and upcoming requirements and to use new and innovative methods recently developed by engineering experts in the petroleum refining industry to ensure the safe operation of process safety equipment,” said Cal/OSHA Chief Juliann Sum. “This means safer operations at the refinery, which will help protect refinery workers and those who work and live nearby.”
