TIMMONSVILLE, S.C. - Honda of South Carolina Mfg. Inc. has been recognized among America's safest places to work by to EHS Today, a publication that promotes environmental, health and safety in the workplace.

HSC, an ATV plant, was among 16 companies that received the 2013 award Tuesday during a safety conference in Atlanta, Ga.

 "Companies named to EHS Today's list understand the symbiotic relationship between safety and productivity, profits, morale and employee retention," said Sandy Smith, editor in chief of EHS Today. "The marketplace is demanding that companies be sustainable, and they should be considered sustainable only if they protect their most important asset -- employees."

Companies receiving the award will be profiled in the November issue of the magazine.
