Rockwell Automation named Corning Environmental Technologies and Bevcorp as recipients of its 2014 Manufacturing Safety Excellence Awards. The winners were recognized at the Safety Leadership Conference on October 27 – 29, 2014 in Indianapolis.

Created in 2013, the annual awards celebrate the world’s safest manufacturing companies – specifically those that realize the widespread benefits of a holistic approach to safety. They are given to companies that make people and machinery safety a core business value by incorporating the three key pillars of a comprehensive safety program:

  • A strong safety culture
  • A formalized compliance strategy, and
  • Capital investments in technologies that help improve worker safety and plant productivity

The awards also recognize collaboration between environmental health and safety (EHS) and engineering departments to help ensure compliance, worker safety and plant productivity.

The awards are open to manufacturers, machine builders (OEMs) or system integrators, as long as they demonstrate a true commitment to safety. The next call for nominations will open in the summer of 2015.
