Health & Safety

Improving personal and process safety is a top priority at Tesoro.

We are committed to operating our refineries, pipelines, retail stations and other facilities in a manner that promotes the health and safety of our employees, our customers and the communities where we do business.

Our Environmental, Health & Safety (EH&S) policy establishes metrics, expectations and responsibilities for achieving our goals for these key areas:

  • Personal Safety – At Tesoro, we consider the health and safety of our people a core value and the top priority for our leadership. We strive to instill a culture of personal responsibility among our employees and contractors by setting clear expectations around our safety standards and policies. We conduct regular audits, assessments and program reviews to ensure these practices are being followed and to identify improvements to enhance our workplace safety.
  • Process Safety – Tesoro’s facilities are designed, operated and maintained to ensure safe work environments. To maintain the integrity of our operating systems, we enforce a disciplined framework that includes comprehensive design, engineering, operating and maintenance practices. We use industry-recognized methodologies to assure process safety and asset integrity and reduce the risk of incidents.
  • Transportation Safety – We are committed to conducting business in a manner that promotes the safety of our employees and those living around us. This includes the operations of our pipelines, storage facilities, rail cars and trucking fleet, which transports crude oil and other feedstock, as well as fuel and other products. Tesoro has proactively led the industry in the safe transport of crude oil via rail. We worked collaboratively with tank car manufacturers to develop enhanced rail cars that surpass regulatory standards.
