LONG BEACH, California – Associated Builders and Contractors presented TDIndustries (TD) the Pinnacle Award, one of the top safety honors in the nation, for its commitment to fiercely protecting the safety of all Partners (employee-owners).
The awards were announced March 27 at the 29th Annual Excellence in Construction Awards celebration.
“Associated Builders and Contractors is proud to honor industry leaders who have created world-class safety processes and a safety culture where every employee understands that the well-being of those around them is everyone’s responsibility,” said 2019 ABC National Chair Tony Rader, telecom vice president of National Roofing Partners, Coppell, Texas.
To be eligible for this honor, TD and other mechanical contractors first had to obtain diamond, platinum or gold status in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System in 2019. Entries were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable incident rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations, and video interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Safety and Health Committee.
According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, the average STEP Diamond company is more than six times safer than the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ average for the entire industry, based on total recordable incident rates.
“This award signifies our continued vigilance toward Zero Harm,” said Jamie Dabbs, Director of Safety. “We are committed to safety not only for our Partners, but also other contractors we work with every day on the same jobsite.”
Additionally, general contractor Rogers O’Brien Construction also earned a Pinnacle Award and Austin Commercial won an Excellence Award. TD is proud to partner with other like-minded companies which put safety at the forefront of construction.
