GreenWood, Inc., an integrated maintenance, operations and construction solutions provider, recently celebrated 3 million safe hours at their West Virginia Operations (WVO) project based in South Charleston, West Virginia. The major safety milestone was reached after twelve years of continuous operations without a lost time event supporting multiple clients in the chemical and petro-chemical industries.
Over 300 people attended the safety celebration hosted by GreenWood including leadership team members from the project sites. GreenWood President Brad Wood presented the operations team with a plaque commemorating the safety milestone achievement and specifically cited GreenWood’s WVO Safety Manager, Tony Dean, and Area Project Manager, Kenny Steen, for their leadership in setting the right course for site operations. Brad Wood also worked as pit-master, to provide a home cooked, barbeque dinner for all attendees. Carhartt jackets were given to GreenWood employees as a gesture of appreciation for maintaining a safe work environment.
"On the surface, safety can seem like a simple concept, but it has to be a priority every day,” says Brad Wood, President of GreenWood, Inc. “We work very hard to train all employees at every level to perform safely and continuously maintain that kind of mindset. We are proud to achieve these performance results and appreciate the effort everyone puts forth to emphasize safety first.”
