Safety is a core value of fuel and petrochemical manufacturers, who work together to enhance safety in an efficient and effective way to continuously improve. Our safety records reflect a 30-year decline in rates of injury and illness that are currently significantly lower than the total recordable rates for other manufacturers. Our members know they can eventually achieve their goal of zero injuries and work relentlessly to improve their performance.

There are two primary types of safety in facilities: process safety and occupational safety. Both are governed by stringent regulations and different government agencies. AFPM works closely with these agencies to improve the safety of our facilities. AFPM members also believe in self-improvement and work together to improve safety across the industry.
