AIKEN, S.C. March 14, 2017 – Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS) was recently announced as a Safety Award winner by the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance (SCMA) for excellence in safety performance during 2016.
Although the company has been commended for safety excellence in the past, SRNS employees continue to strive to constantly improve.
“SRNS employees are truly committed to safety and it is visible in all that they do,” said Stuart MacVean, SRNS President and CEO. “They take safety personally and strive continuously to ensure that they, and their coworkers, go home to their families and friends unharmed.”
Combined, SRNS’ Operations and Construction divisions worked more than 9.7 million hours during the calendar year with two injuries that required a day-away from work in the operations division, while the construction division completed the year without a single lost time injury.
“Considering the size of the SRNS workforce and the type of work that is conducted by our employees every day, their safety performance is nothing short of remarkable,” said MacVean.
The company will receive formal recognition for their performance at the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance Safety Summit in Spartanburg, SC later this month.
For more than a century, the SCMA has been the voice for manufacturing in South Carolina. As the state’s preeminent industrial trade association, the SCMA is the single most effective advocate for advancing manufacturing in South Carolina.
