Fisher Sand & Gravel has earned a National Safety Merit Award from Associated Builders and Contractors, which was presented at the 33rd annual Excellence in Construction Awards, during the 2023 ABC Convention. Fisher Sand & Gravel received a Merit Award within the Specialty Contractor Category, which was one of only 49 awards being presented to contractors nationwide!
The National Safety Excellence Award winners were selected from ABC Member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum or Gold Status in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System in 2022. Fisher Sand & Gravel achieved Diamond Status during this time, which is the highest honor a company can receive for their safety program. During the selection process, contractors were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable incident rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations and interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Health and Safety Committee.
"We are honored to be recognized nationally for our commitment to safety in the workplace, as this award truly highlights our team's dedication to safety on the job," states Fisher Sand & Gravel President, Kyle White. "To be recognized on a national-level speaks volumes to our workforce and the pride they take in their job and our company — I couldn't be more proud."
“World-class safety and total human health are essential pillars of the culture of ABC Member companies — and those priorities are exemplified by these contractors,” said 2023 National Chair of the ABC Board of Directors, Milton Graugnard. “Fisher Sand & Gravel prioritizes taking care of their employees, their greatest asset."
