With its inclusion as a Campbell Award winner, Cummins Inc. becomes part of an elite group of organizations committed to continuous improvement. Cummins was recognized by EHS Today as one of America’s Safest Companies in 2010. The company successfully has integrated environmental, health and safety (EHS) management with business operations as a cornerstone of corporate excellence.
"Cummins is a true learning organization that continues to seek opportunities to strengthen its outstanding approach to safety, health and sustainability,” said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. “Cummins is an example of a company far along on their journey to safety excellence, but whose leaders still pursue improvement.”
Campbell Award nominees are evaluated on the organization’s EHS management system and its incorporation into business practices. According to the Campbell Award executive review committee, Cummins scored highly because its leaders commit to safety through the company’s “Live It, Lead It” program. Cummins actively engages its employees in meaningful, impactful projects in the places they live, and includes its supply chain and contractors as members of the Cummins family.
“Our work in safety is about caring for our people who work every day to help our Company succeed,” said Tom Linebarger, chairman and CEO of Cummins. “The Campbell Award is terrific recognition for the Cummins employees who have made tremendous progress in the area of safety at our company. However, we know that when it comes to safety, our work is never done. There is much more to do and we will continue to be guided by our Company's mission to demand that everything we do leads to a cleaner, healthier and safer environment."
