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 annual safety and health targets for total recordable injury and illness rates. The targets are determined by senior HSSE management (including the Vice President of HSSE) and operations management and reviewed and approved by the executive management team. Due to the complex and diverse nature of our business segments and activities, it is difficult to identify comparable organizations for meaningful benchmarking. Therefore, our approach is to review the previous year’s results and determine, based on a variety of factors, an appropriate and challenging target looking forward. We strive for continual improvement; our goal is a downward trajectory and trend line of injury and illness rates across all business activities. Company results relative to the target are used for a variety of internal purposes, including short-term and long-term compensation calculations. We review contractor safety statistics as part of our contractor qualification process and collect and review recordable incidents and hours for key contractors.

The data appearing above is an approximation and is expected to fluctuate and change year over year. It should not be interpreted as being indicative of trends or guarantees of future results. Genesis Energy expressly disclaims, any representation or warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of such data. The data may be modified, updated, changed, deleted or supplemented from time to time without notice.
