The Safety Achievement Awards program seeks to recognize the commitment to safety and risk management among the hundreds of professional cast-in-place contractors found in CFA membership. “Safety remains a top priority in our industry,” said Jim Baty, executive director of the CFA. “This program challenges contractors to demonstrate leadership by documenting their job-site and company-wide safety efforts. Recognizing safety achievements plays a vital role as the industry strives to demonstrate and promote the importance of job-site safety,” said Baty.

The CFA Safety Achievement Award program recognizes three defined contractor categories; that of Residential Foundation Contractor, All Concrete Contractor and Turn Key Contractor.  In each category, company size is considered with sub-categories for total work hours of under 100k, 100k to 250k and over 250k work hours.  Companies are recognized with awards for Best Overall Safety Achievement, Most Improved Safety Achievement, Zero Lost Time Accident.

Awarded in the category for Best Overall Safety Achievement for 2015 were Custom Concrete Company, Inc.
