Our nVent Thermal Management Houston team earned the Dow Diamond Award—the highest possible honor—at the fifth Annual Dow Safety Excellence Awards ceremony. Additionally, nVent earned “best in class” in the technical group for the third consecutive year.
“Last year, as we adjusted to uncertainty due to COVID-19, we prioritized the health and safety of our employees, customers and partners, taking numerous actions to keep people safe while working in our facilities and at customer sites,” said Brad Faulconer, president of Thermal Management for nVent. “We are proud of our Houston team for their hard work, dedication and continued commitment to safety as they adapted to unprecedented circumstances. This recognition reflects the continual efforts of every Houston team member acting as a steward of safety at nVent. The safety of our people is at the forefront of everything we do and we are honored to earn this award.”
Dow, a global leader in materials science, distributes the Safety Excellence Awards yearly to its Houston area contractors that excel in a number of safety measures while working onsite at Dow locations. Award criteria include safety performance, following incident self-reporting processes and advancing safety culture. Dow selected nVent from several contractors in the technical group, where nominees earn bronze, silver, gold or “best in class” awards. The “best in class” recipients from each group comprise the nominee pool for the Dow Diamond Award.
This is nVent’s first year winning the Dow Diamond Award. It competed against 16 other recipients to earn this honor.
