FMC Corporation’s Agricultural Sciences Plant in Middleport recently hosted its annual Safety Day for plant employees with area first responders and featuring presentations and demonstrations focused on community, home and work safety.
Among the Safety Day event participants were first responders including the Middleport Fire Department, Middleport Police Department and Niagara County Sheriff’s Office, as well as companies that provide products and services that support FMC’s safety protocols including Dival, MSA and Modern Disposal.
Key elements of the day were fire extinguisher and impairment trainings for plant employees.
As part of Safety Day, the FMC Middleport plant was proud to make donations to both the Middleport Frie Department and the Middleport Police Department.
“FMC is a company that is truly committed to safety, which is why our annual Safety Day is such an important event for us,” said Edgar Chirivella, FMC Middleport interim plant manager. “It gives the members of our team the chance to connect and spend some time with the first responders who serve our community, as well as representatives of the companies who provide the safety equipment we rely on. It’s a great opportunity for us to learn all we can about the latest advances in safety protocols and equipment.”
