Which company's safety program do you most admire? The magazine, Industrial Safety & Health News (ISHN) recently asked safety directors to name one organization that comes to mind as having a world-class health and safety program. The company most often mentioned: Dupont, in a runaway. Known for achieving the zero-accidents holy grail, Dupont got more than 10 times as many "votes" as "second place" finisher 3M. Here's the entire Top 10. To read more, go to ISHN's website,
