436 Facilities Across 32 Companies Win 2016 Safety Awards

GEAPS announced that 436 facilities representing 32 companies received Safety Awards for successfully completing the 2016 calendar year without a single lost time injury or illness. The companies were recognized at GEAPS Exchange 2017 in Kansas City.

Robert Taylor, Cargill, GEAPS second vice president, presided over the awards.

"As industry leaders, we have a responsibility to ensure we are providing the right training programs and leadership towards creating a safety culture that fosters doing the right thing when no one is looking," Taylor said. "We have a lot of positive examples within our industry where companies, facilities and employees are going some great things to build their safety culture. By honoring and recognizing their great achievements, it’s a great way to show and demonstrate how proud we are for their accomplishments."
