Rockwell Automation is now accepting nominations for its second annual Manufacturing Safety Excellence Awards. Winners will be announced at the Safety Leadership Conference October 27–29 in Indianapolis The awards celebrate the world’s safest manufacturing companies – those with a strong safety culture, well-executed compliance procedures, and effective use of current safeguarding and automation technology.
Mark Eitzman, safety market development manager at Rockwell Automation, says: “The 2013 winners – General Motors, PepsiCo and Procter & Gamble – were selected because they make safety not only a priority, but a core value.”
The awards also recognise manufacturers that take a comprehensive approach to safety by successfully integrating safety practices between the engineering and environmental health and safety (EHS) departments. This helps enable the kind of collaboration that goes beyond compliance to reducing injury rates while improving plant productivity.
Nominations are due September 15, 2014, and winners will be announced at the Safety Leadership Conference on October 27–29 in Indianapolis. The awards are open to manufacturers, machine builders (OEMs) or system integrators, as long as they demonstrate a true commitment to safety.
