ADM is pleased to recognize the outstanding safety performance of our team at the Overland Park milling facility. The team stepped up efforts to maintain its zero lost workday record, which stretches back to the opening of the facility in 1991,recently logging 3.2 million hours without an injury that resulted in a lost workday.
The nearly 200 men and women in the Overland Park milling and grain division participate in numerous activities to reinforce the importance of safety. Employees are trained to use on-site emergency devices, including Automated External Defibrillators and oxygen equipment, and participate in CPR and emergency procedures training.
“The facility has great participation in its safety efforts,” says Lynn Schneider, an executive secretary who is a member of the location’s Safety Committee. “We want to keep everyone aware of safety and bring it to light in ways that people will remember.”
Mark Kolkhorst, president of the milling division, credits the achievement to the outstanding safety culture the employees have developed. “Our success is the result of the combined efforts of all our employees,” he says. “They are diligent in their safety focus and they take responsibility for each other.”
Congratulations to the Overland Park milling team for their commitment to keeping their colleagues and workplace safe.
