Syngenta facilities in Iowa, Minnesota honored for safety efforts

Syngenta said its seed production and supply facility in Jefferson, Iowa; its seed production and supply facilities in Amboy and Dassel, Minnesota; and its Owatonna and Stanton, Minnesota, research and development sites were recently recognized for safety performance in the workplace.
Syngenta said its Jefferson facility was recognized by the Iowa-Illinois Safety Council for community enrichment and contributions to the local community.
The Minnesota Safety Council recognized the seed and supply facilities and R&D sites with the Governor’s Safety Award for superior performance in workplace safety and health. The Amboy, Dassel and Owatonna locations were awarded the council’s highest award, the Award of Honor. The Outstanding Achievement Award went to the Stanton location.
“At Syngenta, we recognize that recordable injuries are more than just numbers on a page – they’re serious problems for real people, our people,” Ana Davis, head of health, safety, environment and security for Syngenta, said. “The health and safety of our people is a core value at Syngenta. As a leading global company committed to sustainable agriculture, we have a responsibility to protect the environment and to ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers and the communities in which we operate.”
