Perry Engineering Co., Inc. was recognized for having one of the nation’s top construction safety and health programs in 2022 by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). The association, which oversees the prestigious AGC-WTW Construction Safety Excellence Awards, an annual ranking of construction safety and health programs, noted that 47 other companies were also selected as winners for their commitment to safety and occupational health management and risk control.
“We invest so much time and energy in organizing what is a very rigorous awards program because this is a vehicle for elevating the safety and health of the industry” said Dan Fordice, the association’s president and vice-president of Fordice Construction Co. in Vicksburg, Mississippi. “By finding and highlighting some of the very best industry safety and health programs, we are seeking to elevate safety and health within the entire industry.”
Perry Engineering was judged and selected as the third-place winner in the Heavy Division, under 400,000 work hours. Fordice noted that there are multiple winners because the awards are distributed for several divisions and categories, based on the amount and type of work performed. He added that the AGC-WTW Construction Safety Excellence Awards winners are selected by a panel of five independent safety and health professionals within the construction industry. “These firms developed and implemented exceptional safety and risk control programs through continuous improvement and maintenance of their safety and health management systems,” said Fordice. Finals judging for the awards program took place during the contractors’ association’s annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Perry Engineering would like to thank our employees for their hard work and dedication to safety. This is our fifth consecutive CSEA award and it would not have been possible without them. They have truly earned this distinction. Keep up the good work!
