GreenWood, Inc. has been recognized with the Affinity Insurance Risk Control Bronze Award for success in safety and claims management.  The Bronze level award is reserved only for companies in the top 3% of all member companies.

A comprehensive risk control survey and audit performed by independent risk management safety professionals was required for GreenWood to qualify for the award.  Affinity Insurance, Ltd. annually recognizes those members that are successful in managing losses, actively participating in risk control events, and demonstrating a commitment to safety throughout their organization.

GreenWood Safety Directory Mike Simmons states, “Receiving this award from Affinity Insurance is a direct reflection of our team commitment to safety.  We recognize that a safe work environment results in fewer incidents, lower operating costs, and better risk management.”


The GreenWood team at the Durham, North Carolina project has earned the North Carolina Department of Labor’s (NCDOL) Gold Safety Award for the second straight year. This award is given to recognize an exceptional safety record and the Gold Award level is based on the DART (“days away from work, restricted activity or job transfer”) rate.  The team was recognized and presented their award at the state NCDOL banquet.

The NCDOL Safety Awards Program recognizes companies that achieve and maintain superior safety records through accident prevention and by promoting safety in the workplace. Great work and congratulations to the entire Durham team for this outstanding accomplishment!


Safety celebrations were recently held at two project locations to mark one year without an OSHA recordable injury. Luncheons were provided for the teams in West Virginia and in North Carolina. The teams from both sites enjoyed barbecue luncheons prepared by GreenWood personnel who congratulated all employees for their outstanding safety accomplishments.  GreenWood’s “Always Aware” safety program emphasizes safety with each employee to ensure a safe work environment for everyone.


Several members from Team GreenWood attended the Affinity Insurance Risk Management conference held in conjunction with the National Safety Council Congress & Expo – the largest safety show in the world – in Indianapolis, Indiana.  The National Safety Council is the nation’s leading safety advocate with the mission of eliminating preventable injuries. Project members from 3 different sites represented GreenWood at the event. This year’s theme “Racing to Zero…Safety That Works” provided the backdrop for professional development seminars, learning sessions and networking opportunities.
