MISTRAS Group Reaches 20-Year Safety Milestone at Shell Martinez Refinery

Princeton Junction, NJ - March, 2017 - MISTRAS Group, Inc. is proud to announce that employees assigned to the Shell Martinez Oil Refinery in Martinez, California have completed 20 consecutive years of work with zero recordable injuries.

“Congratulations to the MISTRAS team for this outstanding achievement,” said Dr. Sotirios J. Vahaviolos, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MISTRAS Group. “This recognition represents a long history of mutually-earned respect between the MISTRAS and Shell organizations. We take great pride in our commitment to safety excellence, accountability to those around us, and deep respect for our clients. I am proud to see that nearly 40 years after I founded MISTRAS, a culture built on those values continues to thrive.”

Each inspection team is comprised of certified nondestructive testing (NDT) technicians, American Petroleum Institute (API) inspectors, and rope access technicians, meeting a variety of industry standards and project requirements. Operations are often conducted in at-height or confined spaces, highlighting the need for heightened safety awareness.

“We’re grateful to Shell for allowing us to be an integral part of their operations for so long,” said Chris Smith, MISTRAS Group Vice President, Corporate Compliance. “Being in the asset protection business, MISTRAS is dedicated to keeping people safe, and the team in Martinez has an exceptional record of upholding that standard.”

“This milestone is a testament to the commitment of our employees to work safe and work smart on a daily basis,” said Mike Price, General Manager of the MISTRAS Services division located in Benicia, CA. “Credit goes to every member of the operation, from project managers, supervisors, and each member of the crew, for fully buying into the safety programs and values that we preach.”

MISTRAS Group continues to be a global leader for on-site safety awareness. MISTRAS has received dozens of safety awards from international energy companies and trade organizations around the world, supporting MISTRAS’ commitment to effective safety policies, protocols, and training.
