Trouw Nutrition U.S.'s Team in Neosho, Missouri, has achieved 4,200 days without an OSHA reportable lost workday.

Through management commitment, employee engagement, worksite hazard analysis, prevention, and training, Trouw Nutrition's team in Neosho, Missouri, has achieved 4,200 days without an OSHA reportable lost workday. The term "lost workday" is used to designate cases involving workdays missed due to accident or injury.

"Safety is a choice, and our team is committed to teaching and fostering this culture at our site," said Bill Benton, Neosho Plant Manager.

Stellar safety performances like this rarely make headlines. These accomplishments seem to garner attention only when representing something better than before, like when a plant previously plagued by workplace hazards reinvents its safety culture. For Trouw Nutrition U.S., safety is central to everything we do, and the employees at Neosho make it their top priority in every situation.

"The Neosho team has taken safety ownership to a level that is difficult to achieve," said Andy Fischer, Director of Operations. "The dedication to maintaining such an incredible performance in the face of all the challenges of a manufacturing site is an example for everyone in Nutreco (Trouw Nutrition's parent company)."

Terri Boeser, General Manager of Trouw Nutrition's U.S. Companion Animal Division, said, "Congratulations, Neosho! This is an impressive accomplishment and shows the commitment to our people and continually choosing to do the right thing – protecting our most important asset, our people!"

Congratulations to the Neosho team on another fantastic achievement!
