Also scheduled to attend the ceremony are Paul Easterday, World Wide ESH Lead; Kent Martin, North American Seed Supply Lead; Jana Mentzer, Eastern Corn Crop Lead; and Marlene Russell, ESH Seeds Lead.

The Ergonomic Innovation Award recognizes employers for innovative ideas that have been implemented to reduce worker strains.
