Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) recently presented both Cianbro and Starcon with National Safety Excellence Awards during the 2019 ABC Convention held in Long Beach, California.
Cianbro and Starcon were two of only 42 companies to be recognized during the National Safety Excellence Awards gala. Only ABC member firms that achieved gold status or above in ABC’s Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) Safety Management System in 2018 were eligible to submit. An esteemed panel of safety and regulatory professionals selected winners by reviewing materials required for submission (such as lost workday case rates, total recordable incident rates, program innovations, etc.) as well as conducting video interviews with each finalist’s CEO/president/principal.
This is the fourth year in a row that Cianbro receives the Pinnacle Award, which represents the highest level of recognition and reflects exceptional long-term safety performance and processes. Closely following Cianbro, Starcon received the Excellence Award, which is the second highest level of recognition and reflects exceptional and outstanding safety programs.
The awards kept rolling in for Cianbro during the Careers in Construction Awards presentation at the conclusion of the ABC Convention. Cianbro participated in ABC’s 32nd annual National Craft Championships (NCC), which featured more than 150 craft professionals competing in 14 competitions representing 12 crafts, from electrical and plumbing to carpentry and welding.
Cianbro team members proudly competed to bring home top honors, including five medals and three safety awards at this year’s competition. Craft categories in which these medals were received include millwright/industrial maintenance mechanic, powerline worker, pipe welding, and structural welding.
