Associated General Contractors of Georgia Names Anthony Gorzelnik as 2020 Safety Leadership Award Winner
AGC Georgia recently announced that Anthony Gorzelnik, a superintendent with McCarthy Building Companies, received the prestigious Safety Leadership Award. In addition, more than 750 superintendents and foremen with no loss-time accidents or recordables from around the state will receive an Amerson Supervisor Safety Award certificate.
As the statewide chapter of AGC of America, AGC Georgia is traveling around the state to recognize the nominated jobsite leaders for their dedication to safety. Cities hosting ceremonies include Albany, Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Commerce, Macon, Savannah and Valdosta.
The Safety Leadership Award is presented annually to one field supervisor who manages their project sites with no loss-time accidents or recordables, and demonstrates commitment to:
- Providing a Safe Work Environment
- Uncompromising Leadership
- Building a Safety Culture
- Caring for and Respecting Fellow Workers
“A construction firm is accident-free because of how well a field supervisor manages their jobsite,” said Mike Dunham, CEO of AGC Georgia. “We congratulate Anthony Gorzelnik and his work with McCarthy Building Companies to bring even greater awareness to the vital role field supervisors play in the commercial construction industry.”
A 16-year veteran of the construction industry, including more than 12 of those years with McCarthy Building Companies, Gorzelnik has overseen the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport Landside Modernization, a $265 million revitalization that included the construction of canopies over the north and south terminal roadways while simultaneous upgrades were completed on the exterior facades. His key areas of focus were the roadways, parking garages, and upper roadways. This meant that Gorzelnik was not only in charge of keeping his workforce safe, but the general public as well. The airport remained completely operational throughout the duration of construction.
The Amerson Supervisor Safety Awards program is designed to recognize AGC Georgia members’ supervisors for outstanding contributions to safety on their jobsites. Only those supervisors who show a commitment to outstanding safety are eligible.
“As an industry, it’s inspiring to see more than 750 individuals earn this distinct recognition,” said Dunham. “This means firms are demonstrating their continued commitment to safety on the jobsite.”
