Mark thinks we can learn a lot from Dow Chemical. In fact, in early October, Dow Chemical received the 2010 Robert W. Campbell Award from the National Safety Council (NSC), Itasca, Ill. "The Campbell Award honors organizations with integrated EH&S [environmental, health and safety] management systems that achieve business excellence," noted Janet Froetscher, NSC CEO. "Dow's comprehensive commitment to safety excellence includes all of the critical elements, such as management leadership and employee engagement, an integrated safety management system, a risk reduction mindset, and careful measurement. This commitment is further demonstrated by the organization's 'Drive to Zero' safety initiative, which represents an inclusive strategy with detailed execution in all phases of its operations in this move toward zero injuries. Dow seeks to eliminate unplanned events involving personal injury, process safety or the environment. It has everything in place to achieve such a lofty goal."
