Cabot Corporation (NYSE: CBT) announced that three of its U.S. manufacturing facilities were recognized with “Certificates of Excellence” by the American Chemistry Council (ACC) for their safety achievements in 2014.
These awards were presented to Cabot’s inkjet colorants plant in Haverhill, Mass.; fumed metal oxides plant in Midland, Mich.; and activated carbon plant in Pryor, Okla. in recognition of each location’s outstanding safety results throughout the past year. This is the highest safety certificate awarded to individual facilities by the ACC and is bestowed upon those that complete a year with no Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable injuries or illnesses, which result in days away from work, and no restricted workdays or job transfers among both employees and contractors.
“Safety is our number one priority and our performance in this area is world class. We are proud of the accomplishments of all of our facilities and especially honored by the ACC’s recognition of our safety performance at Haverhill, Midland and Pryor,” said Martin O’Neill, senior vice president, Safety, Health and Environment. “This recognition is a testament to the safety culture that our employees and leadership teams promote on a daily basis. As we continue to improve our safety, health and environmental performance, we will remain focused on achieving our goal of zero recordable injuries and zero incidents at all of our facilities globally.”
