Starch Europe Announces Winners of 2016-2017 Safety Awards

Starch Europe Announces Winners of 2016-2017 Safety Awards

09:01 2017

Improving safety practices and achieving a safer working environment is a priority for all 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.

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

42 of the 75 starch plants in the EU represented by the 27 member companies of Starch Europe, participated in the safety award scheme from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017[1].

Starch Europe is delighted to announce that compared to last year, the number of plants receiving the Million-Hour Award doubled to 8 plants, as follows:
