SAN DIEGO -- Jeff Woodbury, chairman of the National Safety Council's board of directors, presented the council's 2014 Robert W. Campbell Award to Cummins CEO Tom Linebarger during the opening session of the 2014 National Safety Council Congress & Expo on Sept. 15. The award is sponsored by ExxonMobil.
