Honda ATVsRecently, it has come to our attention how all the Japanese companies such as Honda, Kawasaki, and Yamaha, all have a large presence here is the good ole` United States, with multiple large manufacturing facilities employing hard working Americans. That is awesome in and of itself is a great thing, and those factories being safe is important to say the least. Honda having won an award for excelling in safety is a great thing, and that is exactly an award Honda has been given. Below you can read all about the safety award Honda has received. 

TIMMONSVILLE, S.C., October 29, 2013 – Honda of South Carolina Mfg., Inc. (HSC) is among America’s safest companies, according to EHS Today, a publication that promotes environmental, health and safety in the workplace. HSC was among 16 companies that received the award for 2013, which was presented today during a safety conference in Atlanta, Ga.

According to EHS Today, the safest companies demonstrate employee involvement and support from management, while also providing innovative solutions to safety challenges, and reporting injury and illness rates that are significantly lower than the average for their industries. They also place prevention of safety incidents as the cornerstone for safety through training programs and by integrating safety into their corporate culture.

“Our associates work hard every day to manufacture quality products safely, and without their efforts this accomplishment would not have been possible,” said Honda of South Carolina President Brian Newman. “I am honored that we have been named one of America’s safest companies. We will continue to work together as one team to ensure our facility remains one of the safest in America.”

The 16 companies receiving the award represent diverse industries, including public infrastructure construction, textiles, facility maintenance, oil and gas, mining and manufacturing. Employment also ranged widely, from approximately 100 to nearly 70,000.

“Companies named to EHS Today’s list understand the symbiotic relationship between safety and productivity, profits, morale and employee retention,” said Sandy Smith, editor in chief of EHS Today. “The marketplace is demanding that companies be sustainable, and they should be considered sustainable only if they protect their most important asset -- employees.”

Companies receiving the award will be profiled in the November issue of the magazine.
