Nation's Safest Construction Companies Honored by AGC

March 6, 2009

AGC named Oaks Corners, N.Y.-based Elderlee Inc., the safest construction company in America this year. Elderlee and 42 other construction companies were honored at AGC's 90th Convention for the strength of their safety programs and overall safety performance in 2008.

"There's no better measure of the strength of a company than its ability to keep its workers safe and healthy," said Doug Pruitt, incoming president of AGC. "These companies understand that safety is much more than a series of requirements, it is a way of operating that drives every decision on every project, every time."

The Construction Safety Excellence Award winners were announced during AGC's 90th Annual Convention this week in San Diego, Calif. Award winners were selected by a panel of distinguished construction safety professionals from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. The awards were sponsored by WillisHRH, a construction insurance and surety broker.
