Following much anticipation, commitment and hard work, the winners of the AGC/Willis Construction Safety Excellence Awards (CSEA) were unveiled at AGC’s 94th Annual Convention last week in Palm Springs, Calif. Sixty-five construction firms advanced to this final selection round from the initial judging that took place in January.

At the safety awards breakfast, Paul Becker, chairman construction practice, Willis, applauded the level of passion, commitment and sharing that is demonstrated by applicants and judges in this competition, encouraging others to participate and, by doing so, improving their safety program.

Improvement is indeed a beneficial side effect of the CSEA program as noted by participants and judges alike. Even by filling out the initial application, a company has already done something good for its program, according to one participant.

The 65 finalists presented before a panel of five judges, who reviewed each safety program for employee and management involvement, new and innovative programs, procedures and resources used to promote safety. Once first, second and third place winners were determined, each category first-place winners were judged to determine the "Best of the Best,” or the grand award winner. Opp Construction of Grand Forks, N.D. won that recognition in the category of Municipal & Utility, 100-001 - 300,000 work hours.

AGC wishes to thank all the participating companies, the initial and final judges, and Willis. Together, they form the CSEA program, which betters the industry by improving companies’ safety programs and helping to keep construction employees safe.

AGC annually participates in the National Work Zone Awareness Week to highlight the dangers that motorists not obeying speed limits or not staying alert in highway construction work zones pose for construction workers. This year’s National Work Zone Awareness Week will take place April 15-19, 2013, with the theme "Work Zone Safety: We’re All In This Together.”

To get a better handle on the impact of vehicle crashes at AGC member work sites, the association has prepared a survey and asks for your participation. AGC will be releasing the survey results as part of Work Zone Awareness Week events.

Survey link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2013WorkZoneAwareness

The deadline to complete this survey is Monday, March 25.

Should you have any questions, please contact AGC's Senior Director of the Highway & Transportation Division Brian Deery at deeryb@agc.org or (703) 837-5319.

Thank you to those of you who have already completed the survey - your feedback is much appreciated! And for those of you who have not yet had the chance, please do so today!
 
Regulatory & Legislative Updates

AGC will hold a special roundtable session that provides attendees with an opportunity to give input on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Safety Manual (EM-385) revision process directly to USACE and Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) safety representatives.
