Savannah River Nuclear Solutions was recently recognized by the National Safety Council (NSC) for achieving 25 Million safe-work hours without a lost work day due to an on-the-job injury; the team was also awarded the NSC Industry Leader Award for their exemplary safety performance in comparison to similar companies in the same industry.

On June 6, SRNS achieved a company record-setting milestone of 25 Million safe-work hours. This record represents the work of more than 6,500 employees working in diverse organizations across the
Savannah River Site (SRS). The management and operations contractor at SRS continued to grow their
company record, exceeding more than 27 Million safe-work hours in July.

In recognition for the team’s safety achievement, SRNS was awarded the NSC “25 Million Safe Hour” award.  The NSC also recognized SRNS with a 2019 Industry Leader Award.

This award benchmarks outstanding safety achievements among member companies, recognizing the top 5 percent of companies, units and facilities that have met extensive criteria and who have qualified for the NSC 2019 Occupational Excellence Achievement Award, which SRNS recently won in May for the eleventh consecutive year.

“I am really pleased that the 6,500 SRNS employees are being recognized for their efforts to keep one another safe,” said Stuart MacVean, SRNS President and CEO. “Their commitment to each other and to the Savannah River Site’s important missions is remarkable.”

SRNS has received more than 45 awards from the NSC in acknowledgment of their outstanding safety
practices and has been the recipient of over 135 safety awards and recognitions from other nationally recognized organizations, including the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation,
the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and the South Carolina Manufacturer’s Alliance.

The National Safety Council is a nonprofit organization who advocates for the elimination of preventable
injuries and deaths in the workplace, community and at home. Through a combination of research, education and training, they have become a leader in workplace safety.
