It seems that health and safety are bigger priorities these days than ever. As it looks to improve the safety of its workers, Butterball adds another member to its risk management team, appointing Darrell Bradfield as Director of Corporate Safety, Health, and Security.
In this role, Bradfield provides planning and oversight of policies and programs in order to ensure the safety, health, and well-being of the team members at Butterball. He is also responsible for promoting the continuous improvement of safety performance, according to a press release.
Bradfield brings over two decades of experience in environmental health and safety leadership to the table, making him the perfect fit to help the company reach its safety goals.
“Darrell’s depth of experience in developing and implementing proven risk reduction programs, especially in manufacturing environments, make him well suited for Butterball,” said Suzanne Griffin, Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Chief Risk Officer.
Bradfield joins Director of Environmental Affairs and Sustainability, Lankford Ruffin on the team. Ruffin, who was appointed to this role in 2019, oversees all environmental affairs, including compliance, operational and engineering changes, and emergency response. Ruffin also serves as Vice Chair on the 2021 Board of Directors for the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Poultry and Egg.
“Lankford is a leader and influential advocate for sustainability who routinely seeks out best practices and opportunities for the company to reduce its impact on natural resources as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” said Griffin, who is confident in what the two will accomplish as a pair. “Butterball has made significant commitments to remaining an industry leader in workplace safety and to our commitment as responsible environmental stewards. Darrell and Lankford share these company values, and we are excited to have their expertise leading these functions.”
We here at Deli Market News wish Darrell Bradfield the best in his new role, as this powerful pair pushes toward making the workplace safer for its employees.
