The American Bakers Association Safety Recognition Program is honored to award 20 member companies across 133 facilities for their effective and successful safety programs in 2021.

“With the most recipient companies in the Program's history, we are proud to highlight the baking sector’s continued commitment to workforce safety,” said Robb MacKie, president and chief executive officer of the American Bakers Association. “Our industry's workforce is the heart of our operations and this program demonstrates our members’ dedication to workplace safety even as they grappled with additional challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The Safety Recognition Program was created in 2016 to establish a safety incentive and recognize individual bakery and allied company sites. The program has increased workplace safety awareness and emphasizes the importance of employee safety in the baking and allied industries. These efforts to develop strong safety programs also prove to be an investment in the company’s financial health as well.
