NORMAN, Okla., April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the last three years, Oklahoma-based Cimarron Energy has made significant changes to create a safer environment for its workforce. In 2014, Cimarron's plants achieved a Total Recordable Incident Rate below the preliminary national average for its industry for the first time, representing a 66% reduction in safety incidents from 2013 alone.
Larry Holdge, President of Cimarron Energy, stated, "This achievement represents a diligent effort across the company to improve safety. It could not have been accomplished without our outstanding people who were intent to learn and improve, and the leadership of Brenda Truman, our Senior Manager of HSE." Commissioner Mark Costello of the Oklahoma Department of Labor will acknowledge Cimarron for their achievements during presentations at both the Newcastle and Marlow facilities on April 15th and 16th.
Cimarron facilities in Oklahoma and Colorado have made significant improvements in their overall safety programs, implementing site safety committees, and incident investigation and audit groups involving all levels of the organization. A number of programs were implemented, including detailed risk assessments, personal protection equipment for all workers, implementation of a "fall arrest" program, changes in manufacturing processes, and periodic training of all employees.
