Whirlwind Steel, a Houston-based metal building manufacturer, was awarded the 2018 Platinum Safety Partner Award for the second year in a row; an award that one-third of one percent of policyholders receive.
Each year, Texas Mutual Workers’ Compensation Insurance, a provider of workers’ compensation, recognizes policyholders with a demonstrated commitment to employee safety through its Work Safe, Texas Program. Of the 70,000 eligible Texas Mutual policyholders, Whirlwind was one of only 200 companies to receive the honor this year.
According to Texas Mutual, Whirlwind provides “the resources necessary to protect employees from workplace hazards,” as reflected by the company’s “outstanding safety record.”
Whirlwind President Ty Sturdivant says the award is evidence of Whirlwind’s refusal to cut corners. “One of our company’s core tenets is to act with purpose, which means following through on all commitments, including our commitment to safety. We believe in doing things the right way, and this honor is proof of that. We’re grateful to Texas Mutual for the recognition and look forward to building on our excellent safety record in the years to come.”
