Polydeck was named a South Carolina Chamber of Commerce 2020 Safety Award Winner. The Company was named as a recipient of the award during the Chamber’s annual Safety Awards ceremony, held virtually in March.

The South Carolina Chamber 2020 Safety Award is designed to recognize companies who exemplify workplace safety and safety culture. The SC Chamber believes in this award as a way to highlight and honour companies who prioritize workplace and safety culture, and contribute to making the state a desirable place to live, work, and do business. The screening company is among 147 companies across the state who were named Safety Award recipients at the virtual award ceremony.

“It is quite an honour to have our culture and focus on safety recognized by the SC Chamber,” said Safety Manager Robbie Miller. “However, it’s simply a way of life for us. We recognize that safety begins and ends with each of us. It’s up to everyone at Polydeck, and it shows that everyone agrees when you witness the culture of workplace safety that is evident here on a daily basis.

“Every employee is empowered and encouraged to initiate conversations and actions to maintain and improve our safety culture. This award is a testament to every employee and their dedication to accomplishing our goals together,” stated Miller.

Polydeck has created a conscious culture of workplace and employee safety and said it is something the company focuses on daily. Its employees are its most valuable asset and the company considers it the highest responsibility to provide and maintain a safe and welcoming work environment.

The Company focused on small, yet impactful changes along with total support from its leadership team to earn this award and ultimately create a strong safety culture. By incorporating “Safety First” language into its Mission Statement, the company made safety a tangible focus for the business. Metrics were put in place to ensure the focus was measurable. Every employee is involved in the safety culture, from participation in safety audits, hazard analysis tasks, surveys, employee suggestions, safety champions, and even a focus on employee engagement that reflects a safety aspect.
