Three Rivers‘ Paul Crivac and Brian Powers accepted the Associated Builders and Contractors National Safety Excellence Award at the 26th Annual Excellence in Construction Gala March 2 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The ABC National Safety Excellence Awards recognize companies that show commitment to jobsite safety and whose safety performance and programs are judged to be exemplary by the ABC National Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) Committee.
Awards are based on data submitted via STEP applications, essay questions and video interviews with company Presidents/CEOs/Principals about their corporate safety culture. Award categories are based on a company’s total work-hours per calendar year and placement within the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).
Consideration goes out to companies that have OSHA recordable incident rates and lost work day cases that are at least 25 percent lower than their industry average. The winners also must have an exceptional safety program and impressive past safety record.
Three Rivers has won this award eight times since 2000.
“We are thrilled to receive an award like this, we are so grateful for the commitment that we have to safety in our culture across the board. Our team is very responsive to making an effort that everyone on and off every job site is safe. The reason our program is as an award-winning one is because of our people and their commitment to safety,” Crivac said.
Three Rivers Corporation has re-emphasized their safety program by branding the “Walk the Talk” slogan to help keep their workers focused on the highest safety performance. We have also have instilled The Five Key’s to Safety; Top Down Commitment, Strong Safety Program, Safety Culture, Continuous Improvement, and Sustainability.
