Exxon Mobil Torrance Refinery

Since 2003, Citadel has provided staff outsourcing to the ExxonMobil refinery in Torrance, California. We maintain a full-time, on-site staff ranging from 5 to 14 employees to assist with regulatory interface and environmental compliance for Environmentally Regulated Materials (ERM), Industrial Hygiene, as well as general management including database development and management.  

Citadel provides daily services in ERM consulting, including the survey for Asbestos Containing Materials, Lead Based Paint Containing Materials throughout the refinery. Citadel assisted in the creation of an on-site database to manage the materials, and all staff are fully trained in the use of ExxonMobil software to manage hazardous materials.  

Citadel regularly provides Job Hazard Analysis, which includes: Mercury and Hexavalent Chromium bulk and air sampling, Noise Monitoring, Ionizing and Non-ionizing Radiation Sampling, Hot Environments, and Confined Space monitoring. We have also performed ventilation surveys, safety audits, equipment maintenance and calibration, and quality assurance/quality control.  

Citadel has completed multiple, annual 24/7 “turnaround” projects, where we have been responsible for sampling and record keeping for Mercury, Hexavalent Chromium, Asbestos and Lead during a three-month project involving 1,800+ tradesmen.  

Not only has Citadel been productive, we've done it safely. For the past four years, Citadel has achieved ExxonMobil’s Gold Safety award, while logging in over 64,000 man hours without an OSHA recordable or first aid since 2003.
