Workplace Safety and Health

Environmental, Social, and Governance


It is our intention to create and sustain a workplace free from recognized safety and health hazards. We work to accomplish this goal through a variety of proactive means, such as HSSE policies, training, procedures, audits, inspections, incident evaluations, data analysis, reporting, and communications.

The following topics are a sample of what is included in the Genesis Energy HSSE Procedure Manual:
Look, Find, Communicate, Fix

  • Incident reporting and investigation
  • Hazard communication
  • Job safety and hazard analysis
  • Confined space entry
  • Electrical safety
  • Excavation
  • Hot work
  • Energy isolation (lockout/tagout)
  • HSSE audits
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Fall protection
  • Ladders
  • Industrial hygiene and chemical safety
  • Medical evaluations

Occupational Health and Wellness

We maintain a robust occupational health and wellness program that includes both occupational medicine management and drug and alcohol misuse. Genesis Energy provides its employees with access to a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program that is free of charge and includes a variety of support services addressing family, health, work, legal, and personal assistance.

Safety Statistics

Genesis Energy establishes safety targets on an annual basis. The targets are determined by senior HSSE management and operations management and reviewed and approved by the Executive Management Team. Company results relative to the target are used for a variety of internal purposes, including short-term and long-term compensation calculations.

The work hours used to calculate Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) and Lost Time Incident Rate (LTIR) vary across our business segments. Genesis Marine work hours are calculated using the American Waterway Operators (AWO) Safety Statistics Instruction Manual and account for vessels being in operation 24 hours per day 365 days a year. Genesis Alkali work hours are calculated using actual hours worked for non-exempt employees and 8.5 hours a day times working days per month for exempt employees on-site in Green River, Wyoming. Hours for corporate staff located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania are calculated by multiplying the total number of employees by 173.3 (work hours per month). The work hours for all other Genesis business segments and the corporate office located in Houston, Texas are based on the actual hours worked as documented in the company payroll system.

Since we operate very diverse and unique business segments, our overall TRIR and LTIR rates are not relatable to that of our peers, we compare Genesis’s previous years’ targets and results in order to set meaningful goals for the future. We pursue continual improvement of our safety statistics across all of our business segments.

We review contractor safety statistics as part of our contractor qualification process and collect and review recordable incidents and hours for key contractors.
