Concrete contractors with exemplary safety records for 2017 were recognized by the Safety & Risk Management Council (SRMC) of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, Mo., at the association’s Annual Conference in Charlotte, NC on September 20th.

W. Burr Bennett Awards for Safety Excellence were given to specialty contractor Lloyd Concrete Services, Rustburg, VA, and general contractor Shiel Sexton Co., Inc., Indianapolis, IN. These awards are presented in partnership with CNA, Chicago, to contractors that place the highest priority on safety. Entries are judged on three years of safety performance indicators, values and trends; a self-assessment checklist of company safety practices; and detailed descriptions of safety plans and culture.
