BB&T Insurance Services gives Myrtle Beach-based company its Lighthouse Beam Recognition Award
MYRTLE BEACH, SC | The Jackson Companies, owner-operator of Ocean Lakes Family Campground, has received a top award from BB&T Insurance Services for the company’s excellent track record of workplace safety.
BB&T presented the Myrtle Beach-based company with its Lighthouse Beam Safety Recognition Award for achieving an Excellent OSHA Recordable Incident Rate in 2016. Only about 10 percent of BB&T Insurance Services’ clients reach this top level.
BB&T Insurance Services initiated the Lighthouse Beam Recognition Award to promote safety and health excellence and to recognize their clients’ performance. To receive the Lighthouse Beam Excellence Award, a client’s recordable incident rate with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration must be 15 percent below the industry average.
Lawton Greenwood, Senior Vice President with BB&T Boyle Vaughan Insurance, recently met with company leaders and teammates in Myrtle Beach and presented the award to Bonita Lloyd, Director of Human Resources & Safety for The Jackson Companies.
“BB&T Insurance Services Inc. takes great pride in recognizing and celebrating the ‘best of the best’ and is proud to include The Jackson Companies in this elite group,” said Henry Wright, Senior Vice President & Director of BB&T Insurance Services. “The Lighthouse Beam Safety Award reflects The Jackson Companies management’s leadership, dedication and commitment to providing a safe and healthy environment for its employees.”
The Jackson Companies has an 11- member Safety Committee, made up of teammates and managers, who work to ensure the company maintains the highest level of safety. The committee regularly inspects all areas of the company to identify potential hazards and works with department managers to address any potential risks.
Lloyd credited the leaders and teammates at The Jackson Companies for their unwavering commitment to workplace safety. The Jackson Companies has about 250 year-round teammates and another 300 seasonal employees.
“The passion our teammates have for their work shines every day,” Lloyd said. “This award is a testament to their efforts and dedication to performing at a top level in all aspects of their job.”
