Akzo Nobel's Chemicals business in the United States has won an award for its safe handling of hazardous chemicals.

Presented annually by the Norfolk Southern transport organization, the Thoroughbred Chemical Safety Award recognizes customers who have shipped more than 1,000 carloads of hazardous chemicals without incident on the company's rail network.

Akzo Nobel Chemicals Inc, which has now won the award five years in a row, was one of 36 Norfolk Southern customers to be honored for 2004.

'These companies have demonstrated in the best possible way, through accident-free handling of chemicals, their dedication to safety in their work places and in their communities,' said David R. Goode, chairman and CEO of NS, which operates around 21,300 route miles in 22 states.

'Safety is Norfolk Southern's first priority. We believe safe operations go hand in hand with good customer service. We congratulate these companies for their accomplishments and thank them for their safety-first business partnership with Norfolk Southern.'

Between them, the winners safely handled more than 70,000 carloads of hazardous chemicals without a single release of product.
