23 Companies Recognized for Outstanding Safety Efforts

 

This year 23 companies earned BX Safety Achievement Awards. The Builders Exchange began the Safety Awards program 23 years ago and to date, more than 170 companies have been recognized for their exceptional construction safety performance. With each winner, the BX continues its goal of raising safety awareness in the central Ohio construction community.

Each of the BX Safety Achievement Award winners were first judged anonymously by North American Industry Classification System Codes (NAICS) on the merits of the company’s safety record. Information about the company’s workplace injury and illness statistics, experience modification rate (EMR) and incident severity were all considered. Selected companies then received an unannounced site safety audit where a team of BX judges evaluated safety practices in action.

Profiles of the winners will be published in upcoming editions of the BX eNewsletter and recognized during the 126th BX Annual Meeting on Nov. 15.
