Land O’Frost’s Lansing, Illinois, Madisonville, Kentucky and Searcy, Arkansas plants were each recognized Wednesday evening for their positive environmental impact efforts and for achieving the highest level of worker safety performance. This is the tenth consecutive year that Land O’Frost has been recognized in the industry for these important achievements.
“The collective recognition of our team is a testament to how our values-driven culture empowers our facilities to think and act long-term for the good of their teams and communities,” said Peter Burke, SVP of Operations at Land O’Frost. “We’re proud to be recognized by NAMI for the individual work that goes into creating a better world for our Land O’Frost family as we work to make every day more fulfilling than the last.”
NAMI’s Environmental Recognition Awards recognize a company’s commitment to environmental improvement through Environmental Management Systems (EMS). Land O'Frost’s earned its Tier 1 placement for its adoption of pollution prevention plans, preventative maintenance plans, and emergency response plans. Additionally, Land O’Frost was awarded for its efforts in monitoring water use, wastewater discharge, air emissions and hazardous waste generation, among other initiatives to stay environmentally conscious.
Additionally, Land O'Frost’s Award of Honor in the worker safety category stems from NAMI’s recognition of organizations that have achieved a high level of safety performance based on an evaluation conducted by the National Safety Council. The NSC examines several pieces of data including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Total Recordable Cases rate and the rate for Cases With Days Away From Work, Job Transfer, or Restriction (DART) among other factors.
As part of its ongoing commitment to industry excellence, Land O'Frost also provided data during the NAMI conference for The Protein PACT’s transparent Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). By setting benchmarks and aims to achieve bold goals, The Protein PACT, with support from Land O’Frost, is making strides in the ongoing industry priorities: healthy people, healthy animals, healthy communities, and a healthy environment.
