ITASCA, Ill., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Safety Council presented Exxon Mobil Corporation with the Green Cross for Safety medal at its annual fundraising dinner in Houston last night.

"It is an honor to receive this medal on behalf of the men and women of ExxonMobil," said Rex W. Tillerson, ExxonMobil chairman and chief executive officer. "We hold this award in high esteem because it recognizes the deep commitment of our company and our people to a culture of safety." 

NSC Chairman of the Board of Directors, Kent McElhattan and Janet Froetscher, NSC president and CEO, presented the Green Cross for Safety medal to Mr. Tillerson.

"It is evident that ExxonMobil is committed to excellence in safety, security, health and environmental performance," said Froetscher. "The Council is honored to recognize ExxonMobil with the Green Cross for Safety medal. This organization is a wonderful example of the role corporations can play in preventing injuries and saving lives."

ExxonMobil distinguished itself over a period of years for outstanding achievements in workplace safety, community service, environmental stewardship and responsible citizenship. It believes the best way to meet this commitment is through a capable, committed workforce as well as practices designed to enable safe, secure and environmentally responsible operations. ExxonMobil accomplishes this through clearly defined policies and practices, and with rigorously applied management systems designed to deliver expected results. It remains steadfast in its goal that "Nobody Gets Hurt."

In addition to recognizing ExxonMobil's achievements, the dinner was an opportunity to raise funds in support of the Council's mission to save an additional 10,000 lives and prevent 1 million injuries by 2014. Thanks to the sponsors of the Green Cross for Safety dinner, contributions associated with last night's event totaled nearly $2.1 million, a record amount for an NSC event.

Past recipients of the Green Cross for Safety medal include the Dow Chemical Company, Schneider Electric North America, Exelon Nuclear, FirstGroup, Delta Air Lines, UPS, DuPont, Liberty Mutual Group, Chrysler Group of DaimlerChrysler, Kenny Construction Company, Ryder System Inc., Intel Corporation and AK Steel.
