CCI Honored for Exemplary Safety Performance
The Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin’s Safety Award of Excellence recognizes contractors that have achieved outstanding safety performance.
WISCONSIN DELLS, WI: Corporate Contractors Inc (CCI) was recognized by the Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin (ABC) as a recipient of a 2021 Safety Award of Excellence at their annual conference last month in the Wisconsin Dells.
The Award of Excellence is presented to one ABC member in each of three categories: Small Contractor, Mid-Size Contractor, and Large Contractor. These companies must have incident rates for total OSHA recordables and lost work day cases at least twenty-five percent better than the industry average. In addition, Award of Excellence winners must have a model safety program and impressive past safety record.
“CCI is honored to have our safety performance recognized,” said Andrea Siegworth, CCI human resource director. “Maintaining a safe workplace is a top priority for our team and we applaud our associates for their continued commitment to maintain the best safety practices.”
CCI maintains a proactive and cooperative approach to safety management. Their company culture embraces safety as a core value which is built upon a foundation of support from all levels of the organization. The program includes a variety of on-going safety education, inspection and evaluation steps directed toward making safety a total team effort and eliminating accidents. Every member of the build-team is empowered to make the safe and right choice.
According to John Mielke, ABC of Wisconsin president, “We are proud to have membership that is so committed to ensuring every worker goes home safe – every single day. There is nothing more important on the jobsite than safety, which is why we place such a strong emphasis on it.”
OSHA recordable incident rates are standard industrial safety performance measures that represent health and safety incidents per 200,000 work-hours, a unit of measure chosen by the agency because it approximates the annual work of 100 employees. Lost-time incidents are those injuries or occupational illnesses that result in time away from work.
