FMC Corporation’s Agricultural Sciences Plant in Middleport recently hosted a special Safety Moment Day for employees with area first responders that focused on efforts to reduce causes of unintentional injury and death in the workplace, on the road, and in homes and communities.

Among the participants were the Middleport Fire Department, the Middleport Police Department, DiVal Safety Equipment and the Niagara County Sheriff’s Department, which conducted an interactive simulation for employees of drug and alcohol impaired physical exercises.

“As a company dedicated to our local community, FMC is committed to ongoing safety training that will help keep our employees safe on the job and at home,” said Brent Sensenich, FMC Middleport plant manager. “That commitment has enabled our plant to go more than 18 months as an accident and injury-free workplace without an OSHA recordable incident.”

Among the topics covered were home safety and electrical safety, FMC’s key safety procedures, fork truck safety, office safety, work-related stress, hazard recognition and heat stress.

Regan Ginty of the Middleport Fire Department; Brent Sensenich, FMC Middleport plant manager; and Lt. Julie Kratz of the Niagara County Sheriff’s Department.
