Running Horse Pipeline, a subsidiary of Navajo Nation Oil and Gas Company (NNOGC), earned the prestigious Pipeline Occupational Safety Performance Award – Small Operator award from the American
Petroleum Institute (API). The award is based on employee and contractor safety performance submitted to the API Survey on Petroleum Industry Occupational Injuries, Illnesses and Fatalities for the Year 2016.
“It’s an honor to win this award,” said CJ Woodie, NNOGC’s Facility and HSE Supervisor. “This award recognizes the partnership that we share with our contractors, a partnership that allows us to Operate and Maintain RHP without injury or incident.”
The Occupational Safety Award is given to each company with a zero Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) for employee and contractor safety performance. Occupational safety performance is established as defined by federal OSHA definitions and criteria. RHP has not had an OSHA Reportable incident in the last 10 years.
“This award recognizes the commitment to Safety by Running Horse Pipeline and its contractors in meeting and exceeding company and industry safety standards,” said Louis Denetsosie, President/CEO of NNOGC. “Beyond mere recognition of our employees and contractors, it’s the host communities that benefit when safety is placed at the forefront of our business. We should all feel a measure of pride in this accomplishment.”
