AIKEN, S.C. March 27, 2018 – Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS) was recently recognized by the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance for continued excellence in safety performance in 2017 at an annual ceremony in Spartanburg.
SRNS completed 2017 with its best annual safety record since assuming the management and operations contract at the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site in 2008, finishing out the year with more than 10 million safe hours accumulated with the lowest injury rate in its history.
“The employee-lead safety culture at SRNS is an inspiring characteristic within our company,” said Stuart MacVean, SRNS President and CEO.
In 2017, the SRNS workforce worked in collaboration with the SRNS Environmental Stewardship, Safety and Health Division, to implement numerous grass-roots initiatives designed to sustain company safety performance - training new employees to understand the importance of the SRNS safety culture and reinvigorating the long-term commitment to safety among more seasoned employees.
“With more than 5,000 employees spanning more than 310-square miles, achieving a safety performance record such as this requires a strong commitment from every member of the SRNS team. I remain very proud of their commitment to health and safety, both on-the-job and in the community,” said MacVean.
SRNS has earned 115 safety-related awards and commendations since becoming the SRS management and operations contractor.
