NEW DELHI and MUMBAI, India, April 3, 2023 FMC Corporation, a leading agricultural sciences company, has been conferred a silver trophy for the exemplary safety performance of its Panoli manufacturing plant by the National Safety Council (NSC) of India.
The Council’s Safety Awards 2022 aim to identify and recognize organizations in the manufacturing sector with outstanding Occupational Safety & Health (OSH) performance and a steadfast commitment to reduce workplace injuries. Winners are selected after a rigorous assessment, including a review of the past three years of safety performance, a thorough audit and investigative process by a panel of NSC safety professionals.
Commenting on the win, Mr. Ravi Annavarapu, President of FMC India, said, “At FMC, safety is a core value. Our goal is to protect and empower our workers via a dynamic safety culture that engages all levels of the organization. It is an honor to be recognized by the NSC for the hard work that each employee at the Panoli plant has put in to improve environmental, health and safety standards at the site. We are proud to say that the Panoli manufacturing plant has been recordable injury-free for more than 500 consecutive days, and we will continue building upon our safety commitment and make every day a safe workday for our employees.”
FMC was one of 18 organizations picked from 600 vying for recognition in the manufacturing sector across the country. This is the first time the Panoli site has clinched the silver trophy, after having previously been presented with certificates of appreciation at the Council’s Safety Awards 2021 and 2019. Mr. Manoj Khanna, Plant Manager of the Panoli manufacturing site, received the award on behalf of FMC at the NSC’s 13th National Conference & Expo on Safety, Health, and Environment.
