Union Pacific Recognizes Companies for Safe Chemical Transportation

Ninety-five companies honored with 2022 Pinnacle Award

Omaha, Neb., April 24, 2023

Union Pacific Railroad today announced that 95 companies won the 2022 Pinnacle Award for their dedication and commitment to safely transporting chemicals by rail. The annual award honors customers who implement release prevention protocols, corrective action plans and have zero non-accident releases of regulated hazardous materials shipments.

“Union Pacific is proud to honor these companies that share our commitment to the safe transportation of chemicals, which are used for things like cleaning drinking water and making household products,” said Jacque Bendon, vice president – Industrial, Marketing and Sales. “This annual award is our way of recognizing our customers who share our commitment to protecting the environment and the communities along our rail network.”

Union Pacific shares the same goal as these companies to deliver every tank car safely. Our Hazardous Materials Safety team supports customers with joint rail safety training programs and rail car inspections. We also have Hazmat teams located regionally across our railroad network with a four-prong mission: Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery.
