MIDDLEPORT – FMC Corporation’s Agricultural Sciences Plant in Middleport recently hosted its annual Safety Day for plant employees featuring area first responders with various demonstrations emphasizing work, home and community safety.

Participating in the Safety Day event were the Middleport Fire Department, Middleport Police Department, Village of Middleport, Royalton-Hartland School District and WellNow Occupational Health Clinic.

Also participating were the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office, which conducted an interactive simulation for employees of drug and alcohol impaired physical exercises, 3M which discussed falls protection and prevention, and OSEA which demonstrated the proper use of common dust masks.

“Safety Day is another example of how FMC is committed to ongoing safety training to help keep our employees safe at home and on the job and to benefit the local community,” said Brent Sensenich, FMC Middleport plant manager. “That commitment has enabled our plant to go more than two years as an accident and injury-free workplace without an OSHA recordable incident.”
