This Energy Company has been a leading producer of coke for more than 50 years. They operate metallurgical coke plants in Granite City, Illinois; East Chicago, Indiana; Franklin Furnace and Middletown, Ohio; Vansant, Virginia; Vitória, Brazil; and Odisha, India. These facilities produce more than 6 million tons of coke each year.
KERAMIDA contracted with the Energy Company to provide facility environmental, health, and safety compliance audits for plants in North and South America.
KERAMIDA completed twenty multi-facility environmental, health, and safety compliance audits for seven cokemaking facilities in the U.S. and Brazil from 2011 to 2016. Audit teams consisted of 3 to 4 auditors and audits were conducted over the course of 3 to 5 days. Preliminary audit findings with rankings by compliance risk severity were presented in closing meetings prior to the completion of on-site activities. Written reports with all findings and recommended corrective actions were delivered within two weeks of site activities. All work was completed under attorney-client privilege. The on-site audit activities comprised a site inspection of all major facility buildings, personnel interviews, and records review. KERAMIDA will be conducting additional audits through 2018.
KERAMIDA's work with this Energy Company demonstrates our ability to work on an international scale and complete excellent work as a global company.
