Local ADM Plant Honored for Workplace Safety

RED WING, Minn., May 2, 2012 – The Minnesota Safety Council has awarded a Governor’s Safety Award to Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) for superior performance in workplace safety and health at the company’s flaxseed crushing plant in Red Wing, Minn.

ADM will be recognized at the Governor’s Safety Awards luncheon at the Minneapolis Convention Center on May 10.

“An effective safety program is an indicator of a successful organization,” said Carol Bufton, president of the Minnesota Safety Council. “Employers like ADM understand that protecting employees is not only the right thing to do—it’s also good business.”

“ADM is committed to ensuring the safety of our employees, our communities and the environment, and we are honored that the Red Wing facility has been recognized for making safety a priority every day,” said David Turner, operations plant manager at ADM’s Red Wing facility.

Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with state and national statistics, and their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program.

The Governor’s Safety Awards luncheon is part of the 78th Minnesota Safety & Health Conference, coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council. The conference is the oldest and largest gathering of workplace safety and health professionals in the region. The Minnesota Safety Council, founded in 1928, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Minnesota by preventing injuries.
