Dow (NYSE: DOW) announced today that it has been awarded the 2020 National Safety Council (NSC) Green Cross for Safety® Innovation Award.

Dow received the NSC Green Cross for Safety® Innovation Award during the 2020 Green Cross for Safety Awards virtual celebration on October 1 for its Aerial Lift Safety Project, for approaching a lasting challenge and developing a transformative response to the problem.

Green Cross for Safety Awards recognize individuals and organizations for their contributions to the advancement of safety in the workplace, on the road, and in homes and communities. Dow was recognized.

“Safety is at the forefront of everything Team Dow does. It is imperative that we evaluate challenges and look for new opportunities to find solutions,” said Mary Draves, vice president of Environment, Health and Safety, and chief sustainability officer. “I am proud of Team Dow for implementing a new safety process and grateful for the recognition from the National Safety Council.”

Dow’s Aerial Lift Safety Project worked to prevent serious injuries with aerial lift equipment and improve upon original equipment manufacturers (OEM) technology. Dow partnered with OEMs and leasing companies to develop and implement next-generation solutions. Dow participated in field trials for the three OEMs, developing proximity sensor options and integrated automatic controls, and deployed all three into its North American sites with plans to fully globalize equipment in 2020.

“National Safety Council award winners don’t just aim to check off a box for safety. These leaders understand that they must prioritize safety at every level of decision making. We are proud to honor each of our nominees and our incredible winners, all of whom are committed to working alongside NSC to save lives, from the workplace to anyplace.” Lorraine Martin, President and CEO of the National Safety Council.

Dow continues to push for technology developments to improve safety for its workers and contractors. Visit nsc.org/awards for additional information about the National Safety Council Awards.
