LGS Innovations Receives CNA Leadership in Risk Control Award
December 21, 2015 – LGS Innovations announced today that it has received the Leadership in Risk Control award from CNA, the seventh largest U.S. commercial insurance carrier. David Twigg, Senior Manager of Environment, Health and Safety for LGS Innovations received the award at the LGS Corporate Office in Herndon, VA.
“This award represents the collaboration between LGS and the CNA Risk Control team to mitigate a serious ‘at-risk condition’ that, if left unresolved, could have resulted in significant negative impact to safety and business continuity,” said Twigg. “LGS Innovations strongly believes in the importance of accident prevention and creating a safe work environment, and we are pleased to have our efforts acknowledged by CNA.”
The Leadership in Risk Control award recognizes LGS Innovations’ proactive efforts to create a safer and more productive work environment, and to encourage behaviors that prevent accidents and prepare for potential business disruptions. In 2015, the LGS Environment Health & Safety, Real Estate, and Facility Teams worked with the insurance company to review and (in some cases) upgrade life safety systems to ensure that the integrity of operations would be maintained in the event of a building fire. Through the help of CNA’s loss control experts, LGS was able to limit any negative impacts to life safety and business continuity. This award recognizes our organization’s proactive efforts to create a safer and more productive work environment.
“LGS Innovations has taken a proactive approach to a safer work environment and product safety issues by educating themselves about common risks in their industry, identifying problem areas in advance and then implementing the necessary steps to help prevent an accident or business disruption from occurring,” said John McQuillen, Product Liability & Technology Specialist for CNA. “We consider LGS Innovations to be an industry role model with regard to these important workplace and product issues.”
