Monsanto continues to be a leader with the outreach of our Global-Off-the-Job Safety (OTJS) Program. Monsanto employees delivered awareness training and critical safety supplies related to vehicle safety, emergency preparedness, first aid and illness/injury prevention, to name a few.
The company collectively touched 350,000 employees, family members, members of the communities where we live and work, and customers through the numerous outreach activities across the world in FY2011. In recognition of the Monsanto employees who promote safety in the communities where we live and work, the Actively Caring Award (ACA) was developed to recognize those employees who used life-saving skills in emergency situations to save others’ lives.
The S.A.F.E. Community Award (Safety Awareness for Excellence — Community) was developed to recognize actions our employees have taken which positively impact their local communities and can be validated by a third party (such as a fire department, hospital, police department or school).
In total, we proudly recognized nine heroes with the ACA Life Saver Award and two teams with the S.A.F.E. Community Award in FY2011.
