The Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) announced its annual Construction Industry Safety Excellence (CISE) Award Winners this month, awarding recognition to Starcon among contractors with three million work hours or more per year. CURT also bestowed 2018 Honorable Mention recognition upon Cianbro for outstanding workforce development efforts.
“These CURT awards highlight two of the most important priorities at Cianbro and Starcon,” said Starcon President and Chief Operating Officer Peter Cianchette, “namely: Making sure that our team members go home in better condition than when they arrived on the job, and making sure that everyone in our company has the opportunity for lifelong learning. A healthy and skilled workforce can accomplish monumental tasks, and we challenge our team with such tasks routinely. Many thanks to CURT for recognizing the lofty goals in safety and workforce development which our company actively supports, from the most senior managers to the newest recruits.”
CURT is an association of leading corporations dedicated to the promotion of cost effective construction methods. The members, as major consumers of construction services, seek to foster improved construction safety performance through recognition of the achievement of excellence and the promotion of proven effective work practices.
The CISE program seeks to encourage efforts to improve safety by recognizing safety leaders in all segments of the construction industry. Award applications were distributed to CURT members as well as leading national contractor associations and local construction user councils throughout the United States and Canada.
With regard to education, CURT founded the Workforce Development Awards to recognize companies and organizations for extraordinary, exemplary and innovative recruitment and education programs which encourage people to pursue careers in construction. Applications were received representing national trade associations, contractors, unions, local labor-management associations, owners, educational institutions and public school systems.
CURT announced these prestigious awards and made the presentations at its 2018 Awards of Excellence Celebration at the Marriott Houston Westchase in Houston, Texas on November 13, 2018.
