Release Date:  Oct 15, 2014

Cummins Inc., a U.S.-based corporation that designs, manufactures, distributes and services diesel and natural gas engines and related technologies, is the 2014 recipient of the Robert W. Campbell award. Keeping its workforce safe is a key component of sustainability, the company says.

The international award, named after the first president of the U.S. National Safety Council, recognizes organizations that achieve excellence through the integration of environmental, health and safety (EHS) management in business operations. As the latest winner, Cummins joins an elite group of corporate leaders that have made names for themselves in health and safety: Johnson & Johnson, The Dow Chemical Company, DuPont, and others.

Award applicants must go through a rigorous audit process, managed by the National Safety Council's Robert W. Campbell Institute with support from 22 organizations worldwide, including WSPS. Supporting organizations help the institute review and select the annual winners. The winning applications are later converted into case studies available online.
