Lansing’s Land O’Frost earns environmental and worker safety awards

Lansing facility awarded for 10th consecutive year

LANSING, Ill. (April 21, 2023) – The Land O’Frost facility in Lansing was awarded for positive environmental impact efforts and for achieving the highest level of worker safety performance.

The awards were given at the North American Meat Institute’s annual award ceremony on Wednesday, April 19. The Lansing location was joined by other Land O’Frost facilities in Kentucky and Arkansas in being awarded.

Land O’Frost produces pre-sliced deli meats and specialty meats.

According to Land O’Frost press release, NAMI’s Environmental Recognition Awards recognize a company’s commitment to environmental improvement through Environmental Management Systems.

“Land O’Frost earned its Tier 1 placement for its adoption of pollution prevention plans, preventative maintenance plans, and emergency response plans. Additionally, Land O’Frost was awarded for its efforts in monitoring water use, wastewater discharge, air emissions and hazardous waste generation, among other initiatives to stay environmentally conscious,” the release said.

Additionally, the Award of Honor is given to organizations that “have achieved a high level of safety performance” as determined by the National Safety Council.

“The NSC examines several pieces of data including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Total Recordable Cases rate and the rate for Cases With Days Away From Work, Job Transfer, or Restriction (DART) among other factors,” the release said.

“The collective recognition of our team is a testament to how our values-driven culture empowers our facilities to think and act long-term for the good of their teams and communities,” said Peter Burke, SVP of Operations at Land O’Frost.

Lansing Land O’Frost is located at 16850 Chicago Avenue in Lansing.
