We take great pride in our safety record at Valero, as evidenced by our investments in safety and our programs and procedures aimed at preventing injuries. In 2019, our refineries posted their lowest-ever process safety event rate -- meaning they're more reliable than ever. This translated into fewer environmental incidents, a safer workplace, lower environmental impacts and better community relations.
