Safety and Health







ADM is committed to the safety of our colleagues, contractors and business partners. Between 2007 and 2010, the company’s recordable incident rate fell 38 percent, and our lost workday rate declined by nearly 50 percent as we worked toward our goal of zero incidents, zero injuries.



ADM is also achieving notable gains in the area of Total Process Safety (TPS) – the approach we take to help minimize the risk of incidents at our facilities. TPS practices help ensure that production equipment and controls are designed, installed, operated, inspected, tested and maintained so that process incidents do not occur.  This past year, ADM issued new TPS guidelines to further improve our inspection and testing protocols.
