SC manufacturers recognized for outstanding workplace safety

The South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance (SCMA) has recognized 104 industrial facilities throughout the Palmetto State for outstanding workplace safety accomplishments during 2018.

“The companies who earn this award are held to very high standards,” said SCMA President & CEO Sara Hazzard. “Strong company cultures recognize that their most valuable assets are their associates and that safe working environments is a collaborative and constant necessity every day. We are proud to honor so many South Carolina facilities for their commitment and achievements in safety excellence.”

Milliken and Company team members display their safety awards.

There are more than 5,000 manufacturing facilities across South Carolina, employing 239,500 or approximately 12 percent of all state residents, according to SCMA. Facilities with a low rate of incidents resulting in lost workdays, job transfers or restrictions were nominated for the safety recognition. Plants submitting an incidence rate below the statewide average for their NAICS code received an award during a recent SCMA Safety Summit in Spartanburg, SC.
