Improving safety practices and achieving a safer working environment is a priority for all the EU starch producers. Starch Europe has announced the winners of this year’s safety awards.

In 2014, Starch Europe launched the Starch Europe Safety Programme which recognizes the best performing EU starch plants in minimizing accidents at work. Starch Europe companies go beyond all relevant national, EU and international health and safety legislation, to minimize the possibility of accidents occurring.

The Starch Europe Safety Programme grants two types of awards:

The year award – awarded to plants which registered no employee lost workday cases involving days away from work for the calendar year, and no employee and no non-employee workplace fatalities for the calendar year.

The million hour award – awarded to plants which registered 1 million consecutive employee hours without an employee lost workday case and without a workplace-related fatality of an employee or non-employee during the period.

StarchEuropeLogoData are collected on a quarterly basis by PWC from companies participating on a voluntary basis. The collection of this data started from 1st July 2014. PWC ensures the validity and consistency of the data provided and reports on eligible plants for each award.

39 of the 75 starch plants in the EU represented by the 24 member companies of Starch Europe, participated in the safety award scheme from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016[1]. For the first year, Starch Europe grants both Year Awards and Million-Hour Awards.
