ADM is pleased to recognize the long-standing safety performance of our employees at the ADM Peoria Corn Processing facility. This team has reduced lost workday incidents by 93 percent over the last 10 years. Their commitment to safety serves as an example of what dedicated employees can accomplish when they work together.
To reinforce the importance of safety, the 220 employees at the Peoria facility take part in weekly safety meetings and monthly training. They also look out for each other—observing and reporting on safety performance and participating in regular safety audits.
A special acknowledgement goes to three of the facility’s departments for setting safety records. The employees at the cogeneration facility, which produces steam and electricity for the Peoria facility, recently celebrated nine years without a recordable incident. The distillation team and the quality control laboratory have both reached the five-year mark.
“It takes dedication and focus to reach these milestones, and our employees are justifiably proud of their accomplishments,” says Eric Fasnacht, Peoria plant manager. “We are going to do all we can to keep these records growing.”
Congratulations to the Peoria team for setting an example for all our ADM facilities worldwide.
In 1982, ADM purchased the Peoria corn processing facility property from Hiram Walker, originally home to the largest distillery in the world. Here, ADM processes corn into 20 million gallons of alcohol each month. The corn alcohol is used to produce fuel ethanol, beverage alcohol or alcohol for the personal care and industrial industries worldwide.
