Each year, employees across CF Industries implement impactful safety innovations and improvements. These invaluable contributions to our organization not only improve our way of working but promote the safety of our friends and coworkers.

We reward safety innovation within our organization, and we share our progress and insights throughout our network and with industry peers.

One of the most prominent ways we do this is through the Wilson Award for Safety Excellence, the only company-wide award program of any kind at CF Industries.

Every CF Industries location nominates initiatives they implemented at their sites, and Top 5 finalists are chosen by a cross-functional selection committee. Then, our Senior Leadership Team selects the winner based on the impact on safety performance and culture, transferability to other sites, ability to be sustained and improved upon, and demonstration of our Core Values.

In 2024, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Wilson Award. It all begins with a spark of ingenuity – small ideas discovered and developed at the frontline of our organization that grow into valuable safety and operational advances!

Check out our YouTube channel where you can see all of the finalists from prior years: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVjLbOkaq0kjAerKgGbb7ag/www.cfindustries.com

Be sure to check back here in early August to see the five finalists for 2024: https://www.cfindustries.com/who-we-are/safety-excellence
