“Alston is honored to be recognized for our safety program for the second time in the awards program history,” said Alston Corporate Safety Director David Campbell. “This award is a testament to not only Alston’s safety professionals, but the members of the field and project teams who follow and implement Alston safety policies and procedures every time someone steps on our jobsites.”
Alston was judged and selected as the first place winner in the Construction Management division, over 600,000 work hours. Dan Fordice — the association’s President and Vice President of Fordice Construction Co. in Vicksburg, Mississippi — said that there are multiple winners because the awards are distributed for several divisions and categories, based on the amount and type of work performed.
Fordice added that the AGC-WTW Construction Safety Excellence Awards winners are selected by a panel of five independent safety and health professionals within the construction industry. “These firms developed and implemented exceptional safety and risk control programs through continuous improvement and maintenance of their safety and health management systems,” Fordice said. Finals judging for the awards program took place during the association’s annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“We invest so much time and energy in organizing what is a very rigorous awards program because this is a vehicle for elevating the safety and health of the industry,” Fordice said. “By finding and highlighting some of the very best industry safety and health programs, we are seeking to elevate safety and health within the entire industry.”
“WTW is proud to be a partner in safety with AGC by sponsoring the Construction Safety Excellence Awards," said Mike Fredebeil, CSP, Senior Vice President and Executive Director of Construction Safety and Risk Control, Willis Towers Watson. "For over 30 years, this partnership has supported the construction industry by recognizing construction companies that go above and beyond minimum safety and risk control standards. These contractors are leaders in the construction community."
