Hardin Construction Company again wins multiple awards for Safety!
Hardin is honored to be acknowledged for having achieved the high standards set by ABC, said Hardin Construction Company President Bill Pinto.
Atlanta, GA (1888PressRelease) June 15, 2011 - Hardin Construction Company, LLC is the recipient of two prestigious safety awards presented recently by the Associated Builders and Contractors of Georgia, Inc. (ABC), recognizing Hardin's low rates of on-the-job accidents and the company's demonstrated commitment to safety.
Hardin Construction was a platinum-level winner in the ABC's national STEP Awards as well as a recipient of the ABC Georgia Chapter Award of Safety Excellence, presented at the 2011 Georgia ABC Safety Awards Luncheon in Atlanta.
"We appreciate ABC's emphasis on promoting and recognizing jobsite safety in our industry, and, as always, Hardin is honored to be acknowledged for having achieved the high standards set by ABC," said Hardin President Bill Pinto.
Safety Commitment and Consistency
ABC's Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) Awards recognize members who employ effective safety practices on their jobsites, and are based on 20 key elements of contractor safety programs, such as management commitment, pre-planning for safety on jobsites, safety training and resources committed to safety. Developed and written by contractors for contractors, the STEP process is designed to objectively evaluate safety programs, policies, procedures and training.
Winners of the Georgia Safety Awards of Excellence are determined by calculating a company's total incident rate and the amount of time lost due to job-related injuries. To achieve this award, companies must have had no employee fatalities, and their total recordable and lost time rates must both be lower than the national average.
Over its 65-year history, Hardin Construction has achieved one of the best safety records for its industry and is consistently recognized nationally for safety performance.
