PLANT ENGINEERING to cosponsor international safety award


PLANT ENGINEERING magazine will be a contributing sponsor of the Robert W. Campbell Awards, which honor companies that successfully integrate safety, health and environmental concerns into their business plan. The award is cosponsored by the National Safety Council and ExxonMobil Corporation, and will be presented at the annual National Safety Congress in Orlando, Sept. 21 through Sept. 23. The award is named for the first president of the National Safety Council.

“Our readers tell us that safety and health issues are important to their employees, to their financial bottom line, and to their role as responsible citizens,” said Jim Langhenry, publisher of PLANT ENGINEERING . “We are honored to be associated with the Campbell Awards, because it honors companies that best aspire to the goal of a safe and healthy workplace. We hope the message of safety resonates with our readers.”

PLANT ENGINEERING ’s reputation as a respected industry leader will help us carry the message of the Campbell Awards to the manufacturing sector, and we encourage this important segment of the industry to participate in the Campbell Awards nomination process for 2006,” said Dr. Mei-Li Lin, director of research and statistics for the National Safety Council. “Raising industry awareness about the importance of safety both for the employee and for the bottom line is a goal of the Campbell Awards, and we welcome Plant Engineering’s assistance in that effort.”

The first Robert W. Campbell Award was presented in 2004 to Noble Corporation, a leading provider of diversified services for the oil and gas industry. Nineteen companies applied for the award and underwent an extensive application process that detailed key aspects of their SHE programs. An international panel of independent reviewers evaluated each application based on management, technical and behavioral applications of safety and health principles.

Among the international sponsors of the Campbell Awards are the International Safety Council, the McDonough School of Business at GeorgetownUniversity, and safety and health organizations in Argentina, Australia, Canada, Central America, China, Colombia, Korea and Taiwan.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
