ADM is pleased to recognize the outstanding safety performance of our employees at six ADM Grain facilities in Kansas. Their commitment to co-workers’ safety is not only recognized by ADM but also by industry organizations that promote and recognize safe worksites around the world.
The Kansas locations were recently accepted into the prestigious Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP), an Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) program that provides incentives and support to employers that continuously improve their safety and health management systems. Designed to help reduce overall workplace incidents, SHARP encourages employers to correct safety hazards; to develop, implement and improve safety and health programs; and to become more self-motivated and self-regulating in the management of these programs.
Paul Mills, grain division safety manager, credits the achievement to each teams’ commitment to making health and safety a top priority. “We’re proud to receive this great honor because it recognizes the effort our teams put into creating an environment that is safe for everyone. Not only does it prove that our system is working, it also encourages our teams to continue making improvements.”
Congratulations to the ADM Grain teams in Cullison, Greensburg, Kinsley, Leoti, Selkirk and Shallow Water, Kansas. Their achievement has set an example for ADM facilities around the world.
In the U.S., ADM operates 152 domestic grain facilities, which together can store more than 350 million bushels. Our six Kansas facilities have been receiving grains, including corn, wheat and sorghum, by truck and rail for 18 years. The grains are safely stored in bins and silos until they are sold and shipped to grain processors, feed mills or animal feedlots. About 30 employees work in these six facilities.
Every day, the 27,000 people of Archer Daniels Midland Company turn crops into renewable products that meet the demands of a growing world. At more than 240 processing plants, we convert corn, oilseeds, wheat and cocoa into products for food, animal feed, chemical and energy uses. We operate the world’s premier crop origination and transportation network, connecting crops and markets in more than 60 countries.
