We proactively strive to integrate workplace safety fully into all our daily business operations. Management and all employees must take a proactive approach to safety, demonstrating leadership and direction to ensure the safest possible working conditions. Our ultimate goal is zero accidents and injuries.

The company will comply with all applicable workplace safety and health requirements and maintain occupational safety and health standards that equal or exceed the best practices in the industry. It is the responsibility of all employees to perform their jobs and conduct themselves in accordance with the safety standards. Working together, we can ensure a safe and healthy workplace. If an employee identifies an unsafe situation, it is their obligation to stop the activity and immediately call attention to the situation.

The company will maintain safety committees, which consist of management and our employees. Their responsibility will be to identify hazards and unsafe work practices, remove obstacles to accident prevention and help evaluate the company’s effort to achieve an accident and injury-free workplace.

The company pledges to do the following:

  • Strive to achieve the ultimate goal of zero accidents and injuries
  • Provide all mechanical and physical safeguards wherever they are necessary
  • Conduct routine safety and health inspections to find and eliminate unsafe working conditions and comply with applicable safety and health requirements
  • Train employees in safe work practices and procedures
  • Provide employees with personal protective equipment and train them to use and care for it properly
  • Enforce safety and health rules and require employees to follow the rules as a condition of employment
  • Investigate accidents to determine the cause and prevent similar accidents
  • Monitor, record and display our safety metrics for our Customers, Employees, Shareholders, etc.

All employees have responsibility for their own safety as well as for the safety of their fellow workers. Everyone is expected to participate in the safety and health program, which includes:

  • immediately reporting accidents, hazards, and unsafe work practices to a safety committee representative or management
  • wearing required personal protective equipment
  • following all safety rules and procedures
  • participating in and supporting safety committee activities

The company recognizes that all employees share the responsibility for a safe and healthy workplace.

Parsons, KS - CST Storage, Parsons, is a provider of modular, factory coated bolted storage tanks for dry bulk and liquid applications in municipal, industrial and agricultural markets. CST is receiving honorable mention for its efforts in waste reduction and reducing air emissions. CST upgraded their solvent distiller resulting in a decrease of waste by 1.4 tons. Because the new distiller is reclaiming twice as much reusable solvent, a savings of 7.8 tons in raw material is realized annually. CST also updated their paint booth filter schedule which reduced the amount of waste generated by 8.04 tons annually. An air leak detection audit detected 13 leaks. The elimination of the compressor leaks saved 55,000 kWh of energy ($4,400) annually and the elimination of a welding gas leak saved 1,329,000 cubic feet of material ($30,300).
