Noria news wires

Greenwood Inc. recently celebrated 5 million safe work hours at its Merck project site in Elkton, Virginia. Greenwood currently provides Merck with various construction-related services. The relationship between Greenwood and Merck has covered more than 26 years without a lost-time injury.

"Every employee understands the critical importance of producing outstanding job results with zero accidents," said Brad Wood, Greenwood president. "We take pride to ensure our employees perform safely while maintaining safe work environments with any type work we do. Through continuous training and education along with a daily emphasis on safety, our team is well-equipped to consistently work safely to reach these milestones that we all enjoy celebrating."

Key to this recent accomplishment was Greenwood’s Always Aware safety program, which emphasizes safe work practices for individuals and teams to think, act and remain safe at all times. The program complements the overall safety standards set by Merck where prevention of incidents, accidents and injuries is an ongoing priority.    

Headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina, Greenwood provides integrated maintenance, operations and construction solutions designed to extend the life of critical assets, influence operational efficiencies and deliver bottom-line improvements for plants and facilities throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic states.
