Safety is our top priority.
At ANPI, we’re committed to safe operations at every stage. Our safety goal is “Target Zero,” which means no accidents, no injuries, no errors. Ever. We can't overemphasize the importance of maintaining a safe working environment, because it makes everything else possible.
In addition to employee/contractor training and physical plant upgrades, our safety program has implemented various teams to monitor and manage potential risks or hazards. From top to bottom, ANPI personnel are trained not only to work safely themselves, but also look out for each other. If someone sees or suspects a problem, they let us know.
Taking safety further.
ANPI's demands for safety go beyond the property lines. Our prevention and response teams also work to help protect the community, our neighbors, and the environment from any harm we can avoid.
Our Community Warning Siren is just one example of how ANPI works to keep our community safe.
If a spill or vapor release should occur a siren with a distinct up and down cycling sound alerts our neighbors. (You can hear how it sounds with the player below.) Those within one mile of the plant should use their provided Shelter-In-Place kits.
In the unlikely event that there is a possibility of danger beyond the one mile radius from the plant Cochise County Emergency Management will issue alerts with their AlertSense system and also with FEMA's Public Alert and Warning System that sends alerts directly to all cell phones in the effected area.
Once any chance of danger has passed, an “all clear” signal sounds, which is a flat tone that does not cycle up and down. Only the Cochise County Sheriff's Office can issue an "all clear" - which tells residents the potential danger is over.
The Community Warning Siren is tested every Wednesday at 1:00 PM and sounds the warning tone for three minutes.
ANPI also works to keep its far-away customers safe by requiring extra safety steps in the products we ship from our facilities. Safety is top of mind in everything we do.
