Environmental Health and Safety
We are committed to doing things the right way at Red Willow.
Protecting the environment and the health and safety of employees, contractors,
and other community members is part of our culture. We manage and operate our assets
in full compliance with applicable environmental, health and safety laws, regulations
and internal standards. In fact, we operate with a philosophy of "compliance plus",
in which we go beyond the routine safety and environmental regulations by implementing
many best management practices. We continually seek opportunities to advance our
operations in the areas of health, safety and the environment.
A core value of ours is the health and safety of employees, contractors, local
communities and others that our operations could affect. Red Willow works hard
to take care of our employees and contractors by providing extensive training
and technical support. We foster a safety culture that is proactive and compassionate.

facilities, requires fewer roads and pipelines, and ultimately results in less surface
disturbance from our operations. We proactively and voluntarily have implemented measures
to reduce engine and greenhouse gas emissions. Our aggressive approach to minimizing
environmental impacts includes prompt reclamation of disturbed areas and extensive
We understand the importance of respecting the environment and preventing injury to
people. We work hard to make a positive difference.
