SAFETY, SECURITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT

IMTT’s facilities are fully permitted for air emissions, water effluents and waste management. Professional managers at all facilities ensure operations are in compliance with applicable regulatory standards and that customer interests are fully protected. Furthermore, IMTT operates a strong security program that is fully compliant with Coast Guard and Homeland Security requirements. All facilities are subjected to independent EHS audits annually.

IMTT is committed to its Safety Journey with a goal of reaching and sustaining Zero Incidents. We know all incidents can be prevented and thus are committed to maintaining and continually improving safety policies, programs, and processes to meet our goal. This commitment is supported by key elements of an ever evolving Safety Journey dedicated to ensuring a safe workplace.

  • A proactive Risk Management Program begins at each terminal and feeds into a corporate-managed effort to identify, document, and address risks of all nature.
  • Major investments in tank inspections and repairs ensure that tanks and piping are fully compliant with API guidelines. This effort is both protective of the environment and customer interests.
  • Safety is everyone’s responsibility and a comprehensive safety program ensures continuous improvement in both day-to-day operations and emergency response capability.
  • Annual drills have involved as many as 13 federal, state and local emergency response agencies (100+ people) and contemplate multiples scenarios including vapor clouds, fires, and explosions.
  • Professional EHS Managers at all facilities ensure operations are in compliance and customer interests are protected in these critical areas. IMTT facilities are fully permitted for air emissions, water effluents and waste management.
  • Thermal oxidizers reduce emissions and continuous emissions monitoring verifies compliance with all relevant laws and regulations. Carbon absorption provides for vapor recovery and waste minimization. On-site water treatment facilities and laboratories prevent contamination and document effectiveness of systems and controls.”
  • Odor control is important at all locations – formal odor control programs involve regular patrol within and around terminals and include application of odor control equipment where appropriate. Remediation of legacy issues at sites acquired by IMTT is carried out under voluntary state programs intended to upgrade older facilities, improve the environment and protect customer interests. All aspects of each facility are checked regularly for issues that could threaten the environment or compromise safety.”
  • Remediation is in place at historic sites under voluntary state programs that upgrade older facility areas, improve environments and protect customer interests.
  • Atmospheres are regularly checked for leaks that threaten the environment and human safety.
