FUJIFILM North America Corporation today was recognized by the International Imaging Industry Association (I3A) for demonstrating the highest levels of safety performance and leadership. The not-for-profit I3A represents nearly all leading and emerging imaging companies and is the largest imaging industry group worldwide. Fujifilm won four Safety Excellence Awards and three Best in Class Awards from I3A in recognition of the safety performance at its Hanover Park, IL; Irving, TX; Rochester, NY, and Greenwood, SC facilities.
"We are honored by these awards," said Ryutaro Hosoda, president and CEO, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. "A critical element of our efforts to build sustainable businesses involves the education, training and safety of Fujifilm employees. The safety record at these facilities, as recognized by I3A with these awards, is important validation of our efforts."
I3A's Safety Excellence Award criteria considers the lowest recordable days away from work incidence rate as well as a low overall recordable incidence rate with the most hours worked during a calendar year. Award recipients are recognized as being best in their class among I3A member companies. Fujifilm's warehouse, sales and service, R&D and photo services facilities were acknowledged with Safety Excellence Awards, and the company's South Carolina photo services operation, Texas sales & service facility, and Illinois warehouse won three of the five Best in Class Awards.
Awards will be presented at the International Imaging Industry Association's 64th Annual Conference in San Jose, CA in November, 2010.
