Chevron Phillips Chemical's Pasadena Plastics Complex Earns VPP STAR Designation

​PASADENA, TEXAS – (October 22, 2015) – Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP’s (Chevron Phillips Chemical) Pasadena Plastics Complex in Pasadena, Texas, is proud to announce it has been named a Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star Site for its exemplary health and safety programs by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

“This is a well-deserved recognition for our employees and contractors who put safety first every day,” said Michael Gilbert, Pasadena Plastics Complex plant manager. “I’m incredibly proud of our site, achieving this designation motivates us to continue to set an example for safe workplace behavior in our industry.”

In 2014, Pasadena Plastics Complex achieved its best-ever safety performance, earning numerous safety awards, including the coveted 2015 Chevron Phillips Chemical’s President’s Operational Excellence Award for exceptional performance in personal and process safety, environmental performance, product stewardship, reliability and security.
