Wohlsen Construction Company has been named the winner of a National Safety Merit Award from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). Based in Lancaster, Wohlsen Construction received the award March 2nd during the 26th annual Excellence in Construction® Awards in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
“Wohlsen Construction’s safety record demonstrates how a company-wide commitment to safety as a core value can deliver world-class results,” said 2016 ABC National Chair David Chapin, president of Willmar Electric Service, Lincoln, Neb. “Wohlsen’s safety record shows that in a culture that emphasizes safety and caring for its people, every incident is preventable and we can help drive the construction industry toward zero-incident jobsites. Our ultimate goal is that every employee returns home in the same–or better–condition in which they arrived.”
The 2015 National Safety Excellence Award winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold status in ABC’s Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP). During the selection process, national safety winners were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations and video interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Environment, Health & Safety Committee.
The National Safety Awards are presented in three major North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code categories: NAICS 236 – Construction of Buildings; NAICS 237 – Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction; and NAICS 238 – Specialty Trade Contractors.
