Safety and Health Awards and Recognition

Dorado, PR Site Achieves Safety Record

In 2015, the BSC Dorado, Puerto Rico facility was awarded the Distinguished Safety Performance Award, achieving 500 consecutive days without a safety incident.  The site has been a leader in the global employee safety “ROB” initiative, with their own local “i-Care” program focused on employee engagement and ownership of their personal safety, and the safety of others.

Boston Scientific Operations Wins Two
Costa Rica National Safety Awards

In 2014, Boston Scientific Costa Rica Operations, including our Coyol and Heredia plants, received two prestigious Preventico Awards from the Costa Rica government. The awards are issued for a two-year period through 2016. This is the highest level of safety recognition an industry can achieve in Costa Rica, and is the third consecutive time the sites have earned the biennial award.

The two awards were for the sites’ safety improvement programs, and the sites’ leadership in advancing health and safety programs with other companies. These awards reflect the sites’ evolving safety culture, including safety in all their activities and planning, and their leading programs in areas such as ergonomics, chemical management and employee health.

Minnesota Sites Safety Awards

The Minnesota Safety Council has again awarded its Governor’s Safety Award to both the Maple Grove and Arden Hills, MN sites in recognition of their superior performance in work place safety and health. The two sites earned “Outstanding Achievement” by demonstrating continuing improvement and/or continuing outstanding performance in safety incident rates and safety programs as compared to industry performance. The Maple Grove site has earned this award for 14 consecutive years, the Arden Hills site 9 consecutive years.
