Safety Innovation Award
In 2016 we received the ICBA Construction Workplace Health and Safety Innovation Award for the 4th time since 2010. Additionally we received the VRCA Construction Workplace Health and Safety Innovation Award for 2016. These Awards were for developing and implementing our Glove and Eyewear Matrices which efficiently help to ensure that our Workers have and use the proper PPE for their various tasks.
We also received another award from the VRCA for Superior Safety Performance in 2016 for a Trade Contractor. This is the 7th Award we have received from the VRCA since 2010.
We strive for “Zero” accidents and injuries on all our projects.
