With representatives from across its modern facility, Seadrift’s Safety with Action through Teamwork Committee – or SWATT – helps build and promote a culture of safety excellence and ownership. Employees like Mary Bowden, who joined Seadrift 30 years ago and now chairs SWATT, actively demonstrate safety leadership by identifying areas of improvement, sponsoring “Take Safety Home” awareness campaigns and networking with similar employee groups around the world. “Whether it’s a fun way to promote the importance of hydration during the summer or making it easier to submit a confidential safety suggestion,” Mary explains, “SWATT is truly an employee-driven initiative that’s making a difference.”
