MAPP Announces Submissions for 2018 Safety Award

INDIANAPOLIS - - The Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (MAPP) is taking submissions for their inaugural Safety Award.

This award seeks to celebrate, recognize and share best practices from MAPP members in safety. Winners of this year's award will receive an award and recognition at the 2018 Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) Summit, along with recognition in MAPP's national publications. As with MAPP's Innovation Award, all submissions will be compiled and sent out to the MAPP membership for anonymous voting. This will occur during the months of May and June. 

All final submissions will also be shared in the new 2018 Best Practices Handbook distributed at the Benchmarking and Best Practices Conference and available to members on the MAPP website. 

Submissions for this year's Safety Award should generally align with at least one of the following topics: employee safety training, safety committees, safety audits/walk-throughs, emergency training, behavior-based safety, tracking/displaying safety metrics, equipment and mold change safety, safety communication or other innovative facility safety best practices.

Sharing best practices, ideas, and creating a community that makes everyone better is the true spirit of MAPP—and in this spirit this award idea was born.  

Safety Award winners will receive their award and recognition at the 2018 Environmental Health and Safety Summit, taking place on July 18-19 in Columbus, Ohio. The Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Summit is designed to share best leadership and safety practices with industry professionals hoping to achieve world-class safety within their companies in a learning and networking conference setting.
