Petro Waste Environmental announced it was awarded a Platinum Safety Award from Texas Mutual Insurance Co. for its outstanding record on workplace safety.

Declaring the award was “quite an honor,” George Wommack, Petro Waste CEO, said the company was one of only 200 companies of 71,000 Texas Mutual policy holders to receive a Platinum Award.

According to Texas Mutual, the award recognizes policyholders “whose commitment to employee safety sets them apart.”

Petro Waste, claiming the top spot among oil and gas waste landfill operators in the Permian with four permitted landfills operated, plans an expansion into the Eagle Ford in early 2019.
