Nufarm Chicago Heights celebrates seven years of no lost-time safety performance

Nufarm’s manufacturing facility in Chicago Heights, Illinois, recently reached seven years of continuous operation without a lost-time incident, marking an incredible team achievement.

With a culture centered in safety, Nufarm and the team at Chicago Heights deliver excellent efficiency and quality of Nufarm products alongside an impeccable employee safety record.

“The dedication of the Chicago Heights team is a benchmark for our entire business, and I am extremely appreciative of their commitment to operating with safety top of mind each day,” says Tom Lyons, vice president of operations for Nufarm, North America. “We can achieve zero incidents when we work as a team, anticipate outcomes and seek improvements to our operations as a way of life.”

Each year, employees across Nufarm North America participate in the selection of an annual safety slogan which is displayed across all Nufarm locations. For 2019, we recognize Craig Hearn, IT technical trainer and support specialist, for his winning submission: “Keeping Nufarm safe is in your hands.”
