GreenWood Inc. was recently recognized by the South Carolina Occupational Safety Council (SCOSC) for zero recordable accidents at four of the company’s South Carolina-based projects: Mitsubishi Polyester Films in Greer, BASF Corporation in Central, Honeywell/Shaw in Anderson and Greer/West Projects in the Upstate. GreenWood’s outstanding total company safety performance for their projects was more than 50 percent below the state average incident rate for OSHA recordable accidents for their industry group. Customer project work performed by GreenWood includes total and supplemental maintenance, equipment installations and construction projects.
“Ensuring a safe work environment is all about protecting your people,” says Brad Wood, vice president and chief operating officer of GreenWood. “There is nothing more important to us than providing our team with a safe place to work every day. Because we consistently follow a proven safety process, everyone maintains a mind-set focused on zero accidents. We appreciate the recognition received from SCOSC for this achievement.”
The award was presented at the annual SCOSC meeting which brings together business leaders from companies of varying industries throughout South Carolina to discuss and address workplace safety and health. Attendees to the annual event were reminded to stress the importance of ongoing safety and health awareness in daily operations of their businesses.
