Rockwell Automation Opens Call for Nominations for its 2014 Manufacturing Safety Excellence Awards

Winners will be announced at the Safety Leadership Conference Oct. 27 to 29 in Indianapolis

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 14, 2014 — Rockwell Automation is now accepting nominations for its second annual Manufacturing Safety Excellence Awards.


The awards celebrate the world's safest manufacturing companies - those with a strong safety culture, well-executed compliance procedures, and effective use of current safeguarding and automation technology.

"The 2013 winners - General Motors, PepsiCo and Procter & Gamble - were selected because they make safety not only a priority, but a core value," said Mark Eitzman, safety market development manager at Rockwell Automation.

The awards also recognize manufacturers that take a comprehensive approach to safety by successfully integrating safety practices between the engineering and environmental health and safety (EHS) departments. This helps enable the kind of collaboration that goes beyond compliance to dramatically reducing injury rates while improving plant productivity.

The awards are open to manufacturers, machine builders (OEMs) or system integrators, as long as they demonstrate a true commitment to safety. Nominations are due Sept. 15, 2014, and winners will be announced at the Safety Leadership Conference on Oct. 27 to 29 in Indianapolis.

To nominate a company, complete the entry form and email it to swludwig@ra.rockwell.com with "Safety Excellence Award Nomination" in the subject line or mail it to the following address: Rockwell Automation, Attn: Steve Ludwig - Safety Excellence Award, 1 Allen Bradley Drive, Mayfield Heights, OH 44124.
