20 member companies receive awards from ABA’s Safety Recognition Program for their commitment to workplace safety

Washington, D.C. – The American Bakers Association Safety Recognition Program is honored to recognize 20 member companies at 133 facilities for their effective and successful safety programs in 2021.

“With the companies having the most recipients in the history of the program, we are proud to highlight the baking industry’s continued commitment to workplace safety,” said Robb MacKie, President and CEO of the American Bakers Association. “Our industry’s workforce is at the heart of our operations and this program demonstrates our members’ commitment to workplace safety even as they have faced additional challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The Safety Recognition Program was established in 2016 to provide a safety incentive and to recognize individual bakery and affiliate locations. The program has raised awareness of workplace safety and emphasizes the importance of employee safety in the baking and related industries. These efforts to develop strong security programs are also proving to be an investment in the company’s financial health.
