Ontario Operations Among Global DuPont Safety Award Winners

DuPont Pioneer Parent Seed Plant - Wingham

DuPont Pioneer facilities in Wingham and Chatham are among 8 Canadian locations being recognised for their excellent safety records.

The Wingham parent seed production plant and the Chatham administration, seed quality and field staff facility are on the list.

The Woodstock corn and soybean research facility and DuPont’s research facility in Georgetown also made it.

The Board of Directors Safety Award comes from DuPont’s global headquarters.

Locations have to complete a calendar year without an event-related lost workday case and have an improved safety record from the previous year to win the award.

Rob Vitek, Safety Health and Environment Manager for DuPont Pioneer Canada, says the award is a significant nod from the company’s global headquarters to the Canadian facilities.
