Boeing has been named recipient of the 2018 Robert W. Campbell Award. The Campbell award recognizes companies that integrate environmental, health and safety management with business operations as a cornerstone of corporate excellence.

Jenette Ramos, senior vice president of Manufacturing, Supply Chain & Operations, accepted the award on behalf of Boeing at the NSC Congress & Expo, the world’s largest annual gathering of safety and health professionals.

“This is the safest time to work at Boeing in our history,” Ramos said. “And that’s because our people are feeling empowered to speak up and take action and are being personally accountable for their own safety and the safety of their co-workers. We’re working together to make sure everyone can go home to see their families.”

Many of the safety innovations have led to patent applications.

“This important honor acknowledges our teams’ ongoing dedication to promoting safety in the workplace and enhancing our environmental performance,” said Dennis Muilenburg, chairman, president and CEO, in an Our Flight Plan leadership message to employees. “Thanks for your hard work that contributed to this recognition and for your ongoing commitment to safety and environmental responsibility.”

Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council, shared a special congratulations to Boeing for receiving the Campbell Award this year.

“The Boeing Company is a leader in one of those most safety-centric industries in the world,” Hersman said. “Its innovative approaches to EHS excellence make it an ideal recipient of our most prestigious safety award. We are proud to honor them, and we appreciate their commitment to making our world safer.”
