Houston Construction Company Wins Top AGC Safety Award

W.S. Bellows Construction Corp. of Houston was named the nation's safest construction company in 2016 by the Associated General Contractors of America, which oversees the Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Awards.

W.S. Bellows Construction Corp. of Houston was named the nation's safest construction company in 2016 by the Associated General Contractors of America, which oversees the Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Awards, an annual ranking of construction safety programs. AGC reported March 22 that 51 other companies also were chosen as winners for the quality of their safety programs.

"Workplace safety is essential to the success of any construction project and should not be taken for granted," said Mark Knight, the association's past president and president of Knight Construction Services LLC in Aberdeen, S.D. "Firms like this prioritize and excel at workplace safety, making them tremendous role models for others to follow."

He said W.S. Bellows Construction was selected as the Grand Prize winner because of its exceptional leadership in safety, adding that it is dedicated to the development and implementation of premier safety and loss prevention programs and presented outstanding guidance in safety and occupation health management, risk control, safety training, work site hazard identification and control, and safety program innovation.

The awards are given in several categories and based on the size of the company, the amount of work performed, and the type of work performed. Winners were selected by a panel of five independent safety professionals from the government, corporate and insurance industries, with final judging taking place during the contractor association's annual convention in Las Vegas earlier this month.
