Delek’s highest priority is the health and safety of our people. Safety is one of our core values and is based on the following fundamental beliefs:
Accident prevention is not only good for our employees, partners, customers, and the environment – it’s good business.
Safety is not to be compromised for any reason.
Trained employees are essential for a safe workplace.
One accident is one accident too many.
All employees have the obligation to prevent incidents.
We are committed to creating a safe work environment through programs in personal safety, process safety, health and wellness programs, and facility and employee security. In 2018, we launched the “I Own It” program to emphasize the importance of individual responsibility and accountability for a safe workplace. Under the program, every employee at every level is encouraged to sign on to four tiers of commitment: to self, to others, to direct reports and to the company. [Those tiers are:1. Act Safe, Be Safe 2. Enable and Support Safety 3. Support the Safety Culture.]
We continuously strive to improve our safety performance with the goal of preventing all environmental spills and releases, fires, explosions, injuries and illnesses, and other accidents. We use sound maintenance and work practices, safe design, employee training and incident investigations to minimize risks to our employees and our communities. We train our employees how to respond effectively to safety issues at our facilities and our retail outlets.
Delek adheres to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s process safety management standards, the EPA’s Risk Management Program as well as other government and industry safety standards such as those published by the American Petroleum Institute.
