DuPont Doles Awards for Safety in the EMEA

DuPont has announced the five winners of the 2009 DuPont Safety Awards, which recognize companies and organizations that have undertaken outstanding initiatives toward workplace safety enhancements and accident prevention in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region.

Now in its eighth edition, the annual awards program singles out five individuals, companies, or organizations that DuPont deems the most deserving in one of the following categories: Performance Improvement, Innovative Approach, Visible Management Commitment, Sustainable Business Impact, and Cultural Evolution.

This year's DuPont Safety Awards were presented to: Danone Waters (France) for Performance Improvement, British Sugar (UK) for Innovative Approach, the London Underground Maintenance Directorate (UK) for Visible Management Commitment, Borealis AG (Austria) for Sustainable Business Impact, and Egyptian LNG (Egypt) for Cultural Evolution. In addition, DuPont highlighted an overall outstanding project with Eskom Hendrina Power Station (South Africa).

"The worldwide demand for protecting lives and the environment is one of the four key megatrends DuPont will intensively focus on with innovation and products in the future," said Koen van Neyghen, president of DuPont Safety Resources for the EMEA region, during the recent award ceremony. "The winners of the 2009 DuPont Safety Awards recognize that growth-oriented companies have not taken their focus off of safety or SHE matters -- a testament that safety is a business value and catalyst for growth."

The awards program, designed to stimulate safety initiatives in EMEA companies, is organized by Nexdor, an independent organizing committee. Together with a panel of experts, this committee considers all programs, projects, or contributions in the field of safety in the workplace or in society in general. It also considers printed works containing important innovations or implementation of improvements connected to safety.
