The Associated Builders and Contractors recently awarded Cianbro and Starcon with National Safety Pinnacle Awards at the 31st annual Excellence in Construction Awards during the ABC Convention 2021 in Grapevine, Texas.
"This recognition reflects the dedication and commitment to safety that our team members practice every day," said Mike Bennett, Vice President of The Cianbro Companies. "As leaders, it's our job to model safe work habits and help our team members understand just how important they are, whether you're working on an active construction site, in the office, or even at home. Safety is a value for The Cianbro Companies, and we are proud of our team members for looking out for one another."
The 2020 National Safety Excellence Award winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum, and Gold status in ABC's STEP Safety Management System in 2020. During the selection process, contractors were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable incident rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations, and video interviews conducted by members of ABC's National Health and Safety Committee.
"Cianbro and Starcon are creating the conditions for its people to do their job well in a safe, healthy, and mentally fit environment," said 2021 ABC National Chair of the Board of Directors Steve Klessig, Vice President of Architecture and Engineering at Keller, Inc., in Kaukauna, Wisconsin. "A culture of both safety and total human health cannot exist without leadership choosing daily to not to compromise on safety, and ABC commends this safety leader in our industry for modeling this belief in every action."
STEP, the standard for developing world-class safety management systems in construction, is designed to help both large and small contractors evaluate every aspect of their corporate safety and health programs and identify opportunities for improvement.
