KENNESAW, GA, April 17, 2023—Graycor Southern Inc. (Graycor) announced it has earned a National Safety Pinnacle Award from Associated Builders and Contractors, which was presented at the 33rd annual Excellence in Construction® Awards during ABC Convention 2023 in Orlando, Florida, on March 16, 2023.
“Leading with safety in mind is not just a responsibility, it’s a commitment to make sure every person gets home safely. Receiving this award is not just a recognition of our achievements, but a reminder that we must continue to strive for excellence in safety for ourselves and our community.” – Brian Gallagher
The 2022 National Safety Excellence Award winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum or Gold status in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System in 2022, reflective of their 2021 safety performance data. During the selection process, contractors were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable incident rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations and interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Health and Safety Committee.
“World-class safety and total human health are essential pillars of the culture of ABC member companies—and those priorities are exemplified by these contractors,” said 2023 National Chair of the ABC Board of Directors Milton Graugnard, executive vice president, Cajun Industries LLC, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. “Graycor prioritizes taking care of its employees, their greatest asset. Among the NSEA winners are several ABC Top Performers, leading contractor members ranked by work hours, demonstrating the positive impact of implementing strong safety programs.”
The National Safety Excellence Awards are presented in three major North American Industry Classification System code categories: NAICS 236—Construction of Buildings; NAICS 237—Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction; and NAICS 238—Specialty Trade Contractors.
The STEP Safety Management System, the standard for developing world-class safety management systems in construction, is designed to help both large and small contractors evaluate every aspect of their corporate safety and health programs and identify opportunities for improvement.
CNA, one of ABC’s eight strategic partners, is the presenting sponsor of the National Safety Excellence Awards.
