I’ve been with the company 17 years and have made it my mission to create a top-notch safety culture. We are truly honored with this achievement”.
The CSEA is to recognize those construction companies who excel at safety performance, closely examining each candidate’s commitment to safety and occupational health management and risk control. Unlike other safety award programs that limit the criteria to frequency rates, the CSEA selection process is considerably more comprehensive. Each application was reviewed for evidence of:
⦁ Company management commitment
⦁ Active employee participation
⦁ Safety training
⦁ Work site hazard identification and control
⦁ Safety program innovation
