12,000 days without a lost-time injury at the Tampa Ammonia Terminal

Yara North America's Tampa Ammonia Terminal celebrated a safety milestone on May 5th: 12,000 days without a lost-time injury. That's nearly 33 years!

"It's an incredible achievement," said Magnus Ankarstrand, president of Yara North America, "and the direct product of a team that has adopted a caring safety culture in its daily operations. What I like when I go to the terminal is that the team members are proud of their achievement, but at the same time I get the feeling that everyone understands the importance of continuous improvement on safety and operations in general." 

Yara’s vision to be an Industry Shaper has led to an ambitious policy for leading performance in health, environment and safety, Product Stewardship and security, quality and accountability. The Tampa terminal safety milestone is a reflection of this policy. We believe every accident is preventable and we strive for zero accidents.
