For decades, Cummins Inc. has been a leader in terms of working with the federal government to create, meet and exceed emissions standards aimed at protecting our environment.

It also has worked hard to create safe workplaces for its worldwide workforce that of course includes hundreds of workers in this area.

That’s why it was no surprise to learn last week that the Columbus-based engine maker will play an international role in promoting workplace safety and employee health after signing on to become a charter member of the Campbell Institute, an industry research group backed by the National Safety Council.

The institute was launched this year to bring together leaders of high-performing organizations such as Cummins to promote environmental, health and safety standards at work and within communities around the world.

We join the Campbell Institute and National Safety Council in welcoming Cummins to the project. We share the institute’s confidence that the company will serve a vital role in its mission.

By joining the efforts, Cummins Inc. will bring not only significant expertise but also the kind of commitment to life outside the factory walls that has been a hallmark of the company for decades.
