Flatiron Safety Program Takes Top Honors for Excellence in Safety
(March 14, 2017) – Flatiron Construction Corp. (FLATIRON), one of the largest infrastructure contractors in North America, announced today that the Associated General Contractors (AGC) awarded Flatiron top honors in the Highway Division for over 1 million hours worked in 2016. AGC, who oversees the Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Awards, an annual ranking of construction company safety programs, presented the company with the award at its 2017 annual convention.
The Construction Safety Excellence Awards (CSEA) recognizes construction companies who excel at safety performance. “This national award belongs squarely in the hands of the men and women of Flatiron who, day after day, show an unyielding commitment to safety,” said John DiCiurcio, CEO.
The CSEA selection process is comprehensive and closely examines each company’s commitment to safety and occupational health management and risk control. A panel of independent safety professionals reviews each candidate for evidence of management commitment, active employee participation, training, work site hazard identification and control and program innovation. “There’s no greater responsibility than to ensure that everyone returns home safely after a long day of work. To be presented with such a high honor amidst so many great companies is truly humbling,” added DiCiurcio.
