GreenWood, Inc., an integrated maintenance, operations and construction solutions provider, recently celebrated 4 million safe hours at their West Virginia Operations (WVO) project based in South Charleston, West Virginia. This accomplishment was achieved after fourteen years of continuous operations without a lost time event while supporting multiple clients in the chemical, petro-chemical, and automotive markets.
GreenWood’s leadership team hosted a safety celebration attended by more than 300 personnel from across the project sites. A special barbecue dinner led by GreenWood President Brad Wood and members from the home office marked the event to recognize the safety milestone. Awards commemorating safety program participation were presented to attendees by Jonathan White, WVO safety manager, in appreciation for their safety accomplishments. Area project manager Kenny Steen, alongside Brad Wood, praised the project teams for maintaining safe work environments at all project sites.
As a company, GreenWood emphasizes the importance of safety as a top priority. The company’s “Always Aware” safety slogan serves as the over-arching focal point for all project work. Preparation for daily work always begins to ensure employees think, act and perform safely. This commitment and mindset allowed GreenWood to record their lowest Experience Modification Rating (EMR) in the company’s history while the West Virginia Operations project reached this significant safety milestone.
