Greenwood Inc. was recently presented the Lighthouse Beam Safety Award by BB&T Insurance Services. The award recognizes excellence in safety performance and is designed to help companies emphasize safety and health throughout their organizations.

"We are honored to earn this award from BB&T, and it is a privilege to have received it every year since the initiation of the program," said Mike Simmons, Greenwood's corporate safety director. "It's a direct result of our employees placing safety first as the foundation for all our project work at Greenwood. By maintaining open communications with our teams to reinforce safety standards, we are able to consistently perform work in the safest manner possible for our customers."
