Working Toward Zero
Based on the two key metrics ADM employs to gauge safety progress, ADM’s overall companywide safety performance showed significant year-over-year improvement between the 2011 and 2012 years. The company’s total recordable incident rate for colleagues improved 13 percent, from 1.302 to 1.133, while our lost workday incident rate improved 26.7 percent, from .330 to .242. Since 2009, those rates have fallen by 33 percent and 48 percent, respectively.
Going forward, we will continue to drive improvement towards Zero incidents, Zero injuries through through targeted improvement plans developed and implemented at individual facilities. We will also focus on fostering more effective safety behaviors by establishing and maintain clear companywide safety standards, and by conducting ongoing colleague awareness-building events, including our annual Global Safety & Health Week.
