Itasca, IL — The Mosaic Co. is the recipient of the 2020 Robert W. Campbell Award, presented annually by the National Safety Council to an organization that successfully integrates environmental, health and safety management with business operations.

Representatives from Mosaic – a potash and phosphate mining and manufacturing company headquartered in Tampa, FL – were formally honored Feb. 23 during the virtual Campbell Institute Symposium.

NSC President and CEO Lorraine M. Martin lauded Mosaic for its commitment to safety.
