At Boulder Scientific, health and safety are top priorities. Our operations are designed to safeguard our employees, customers, community, and environment. Here’s a look at some of the awards and certifications we’ve received that reflect our efforts.
Circle of Safety Award
In 2017, Boulder Scientific was recognized with the Circle of Safety Award from Pinnacol Assurance, Colorado’s leading workers compensation insurer. The company was honored for creating a culture of safety and a healthier, more productive workforce.
Award categories included Gold, Silver, and Bronze with Gold being the highest level. Pinnacol insures over 56,000 companies and less than 1% of policyholders receive awards. There were 46 recipients. BSC received one of the six Gold awards. Companies have to demonstrate excellence in safety, risk control, claims, and financial management.
The Circle of Safety Award was created with the understanding that exceptional risk management is the result of a circle of many people working together. From management to frontline employees, everyone plays a role in making a safe workplace. Circle of Safety winners embrace risk management and are committed to getting their employees home safe every day.
