“It was important to Jeff to incorporate the men and women working at the Corteva facilities in creating a cohesive manual of contractor safety expectations. The contents of the manual were developed, reviewed and executed by those who understood the work the best - the contractor experts. The manual now currently impacts the decisions, behaviors and actions of 20,000-plus contractors worldwide. Safe work practices listed in this manual have led to a 50% reduction in the overall contractor injury rate, with many sites achieving zero. The Safety Program Committee began as a small group of people at one site developing the manual. It now has been translated into 19 languages and utilized at 400-plus sites.”
