Safety and Environment

At The Tierra Companies, the safety of our employees, customers and neighbors is our highest priority. Our systems are designed to ensure that no one gets hurt at our facilities –––– and we believe that no project is worth doing if it cannot be done safely.

All assets must be operated in a safe, efficient, and environmentally responsible manner. We make it every employee’s responsibility to conduct business with this commitment in mind, and it is management’s responsibility to provide the resources, equipment, training, and tools to ensure we exceed standards.

To that end, we have established Tierra Crude University. Since maintaining a top-notch fleet for transporting crude and other products in the Eagle Ford Shale helps ensure a good safety record, this training and safety program enables Tierra to customize its training based on the real-time needs and expectations of its customers.

Tierra Crude University, created and run by Tierra Transportation’s team of industry and safety experts, is an on-site, hands-on training complex, where loading and unloading scenarios for nearly any situation are presented to drivers as a training exercise. The training complex for Tierra Crude University is complete with tankage, loading headers and customized trucks, especially made for Tierra Transportation.

Our safety and environment program covers three main areas:

Environmental: Tierra is committed to be in compliance with all laws and regulations affecting our business activities. We have the right team in place to achieve excellence in environmental performance, including legal counsel that ensure our policies and procedures comply with new and existing regulations.

Health: Tierra is committed to ensuring the health of the public and our employees.

Safety and Security: Tierra is committed to provide a safe and secureenvironment for the public and our employees.
