Greenberry Industrial President and CEO Jason Pond added “There is nothing more important than making sure our employees get home to their families each night. That’s what drives me personally and our company as a whole. We are honored to be recognized by the AGC of America for our efforts.”
The Construction Safety Excellence Awards (CSEA) are an annual ranking of construction safety programs. “Safety is always a top priority for the construction industry” said Joseph H. Jarboe AGC of Americas president and senior vice president of Bethesda Md.-based Clark Construction Group. “These companies showcase the highest commitment to keeping their projects and their employees safe.”
Awards are distributed for categories based on the size of the company the amount of work performed and the type of work performed. Winners are selected by a panel of five independent safety professionals within the government corporate and insurance industries.
Congratulations again to these national first place winners receiving their awards from Willis Chairman Paul Becker and AGC of America President Joe Jarboe:
