At the Acadian Companies virtual annual meeting, Medical Services Director Carole Covey was recognized as Safety Management Systems (SMS) Employee of the Year for 2021.
Covey joined the SMS team during the height of COVID in July 2020. Her first assignment was in Florida managing SMS’ COVID testing and vaccination sites. Covey and her crew often administered 1,600 tests and vaccinated 6,000 people a day. Covey organized project after project, and in turn, created the playbook on how SMS operated their sites. She went above and beyond to ensure that not only the client’s expectations were being met, but also that the team performing the mission had all the tools they needed to be successful in their roles.
From Florida, Covey was sent to the West Coast and began working to get an Emergency Intake Shelter in Pomona, California, up and running. She established all protocols and procedures from the ground up and went above and beyond to ensure that not only the client’s expectations were being met, but also that her team had all the tools they needed to succeed. After several months in California, Covey answered the call to transfer to Pecos, Texas, to oversee another intake shelter.
Covey then returned to Lafayette to assist with staffing for area hospitals. In August, she assumed the role of SMS Medical Services Director. “Carole has set the standard for company representation out in the field,” says SMS Vice President Courtney Juneau. “Her ability to motivate those around her, coupled with her professionalism and desire to provide the best medical care possible, make her an integral part of our operations.”
Safety Management Systems is one of the largest health, safety, environmental, medical, inspection and emergency response companies in the United States. A division of Acadian Companies, Safety Management Systems provides services to all areas of the energy and industrial construction markets.
