Show how your company demonstrates excellence in work-place safety and win $1,000!

Builders Insurance Group and the Home Builders Association of Georgia (HBAG) would like to recognize a top-tier organization that has demonstrated leadership in the area of work-place safety. Every year, accidents on the job cause devastating injuries, even deaths. The monetary and emotional costs are great. However, most accidents are preventable, and there are companies that take active measures to embrace a culture of safety. Are you one of these leaders? If so, the goal of this award is to highlight your company and your outstanding achievements in work-place safety.

The “Safety Leadership Award” is open to all current HBA members. Simply complete the two-page nomination form and submit it to Builders Insurance Group at lkwon@bldrs.com. Entries are due by August 31. The award and $1,000 cash prize will be presented at the ​HBAG fall membership conference in September. For more information, contact Lisa Kwon at (678) 309-4166.
