ASCC Presents Concrete Contractor Awards
October 25, 2007

Concrete Contractors with exemplary safety records were recognized by the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, Mo., at the association’s Annual Conference, September 13, in Charlotte, N.C.

C.F. Jordan, El Paso, Tex., and Walbridge Concrete Services, Detroit, Mich., received the inaugural W. Burr Bennett Awards for Safety Excellence, presented by the ASCC, in partnership with CNA, Chicago.

Additional awards, based on the incident rate for 2006, were presented to general and specialty contractors in four categories. The incident rate represents the number of lost workday cases from the OSHA 300 log, times 200,000, divided by the number of work hours in a calendar year.

General contractors that won the Best Safety Achievement Award for the lowest incident rate were Webcor Builders, Hayward, Calif. (over 250,000 work hours); EllisDon Services, Inc., Charleston, S.C. (100,000 to 250,000 work hours); and Scale Construction, Inc., Chicago, Ill. (less than 100,000 work hours).

Specialty contractors winning the Best Safety Achievement Award were Bartley Corp., Ashton, Md. (over 250,000 work hours); Walbridge Concrete Services, Detroit, Mich. (100,000 to 250,000 work hours); and Trademark Concrete, Anaheim, Calif. (less than 100,000 work hours).

Seven contractors received awards for zero lost time due to accidents and 20 contractors were recognized for having lowered their incident rate from the previous year. 39 contractors received certificates of recognition for achieving an incident rate below the national average.
