Today, the Campbell Institute at the National Safety Council and Stewardship Action Council have announced the two honorees of the 2016 Innovation Challenge. The Cummins Components Filtration location in Izmir, Turkey, was selected for its multifaceted health and well-being program. Deb Group earned recognition for its “Fight Occupational Skin Disease” campaign.

The Innovation Challenge recognizes organizations for their achievement in the planning and/or implementation of an innovative program addressing critical environmental, health and safety topics in a way that demonstrates creative thinking, strategic implementation and/or significant impact.

“Innovation is crucial to advancing the future of environmental, health and safety, but it is too often overlooked,” said John Dony, director of the Campbell Institute. “We are honored to highlight and share the best practices of organizations like Cummins Components Filtration and Deb Group so that more workers can be protected.”
