PHILADELPHIA, June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- PeroxyChem has been presented with the 2015 Safe Handling Award from the Canadian National Railway Company (CN). The award recognizes customers who make the safe handling of dangerous goods a top priority.
To be eligible for the award, companies must have managed at least 100 shipments from a CN location during the year with no non-accidental releases (NAR) associated with the rail cars, whether as a loaded car or as a residue car on the return. PeroxyChem far exceeded the minimum requirement of 100 shipments.
