NFPA’s 2012 Industrial Fire Protection Section Fire Prevention Week Award is Dow Corning Co. Ltd. Songjiang plant in Shanghai, China. This award, presented during the General Session of the NFPA Conference & Expo in Chicago, was created to recognize businesses that promote fire and related safety messages to its employees and their communities during the 2012 Fire Prevention Week.
The award is in honor of the work done by David Hanson and his team for its “Have 2 Ways Out” training initiative. The program’s focus was on training and drills, with additional information provided on their web site, in a printed brochure, and on posters and banners displaying fire prevention themes throughout the plant. Accepting the award on behalf of the team was Songjiang Plant Manager, Sven Eckert.
