PROVIDENCE, R.I., Nov. 17, 2015 – The Construction Users Roundtable (CURT) presented Gilbane Building Company with their highest honor of the Construction Industry Safety Excellence (CISE) Award. The award recognizes commendable safety performance of individual constructor firms over a sustained time period. The award is intended to convey CURT’s strong support of constructor safety performance and emphasizes safe construction as a key component of cost-effective project delivery.

“We are honored to be presented with this prestigious award. Our dedicated project teams have earned this award by their daily efforts to protect the lives and livelihoods of everyone working in our offices and projects and ensuring they return home to their loved ones,” said Tony O’Dea, Director of Corporate Safety. “CURT represents Fortune 100 companies, including many of our client companies. Their recognition validates that we share the same values and intense focus on safety.”

The CISE award winners are evaluated on critical safety requirements including:

  • OSHA injury/illness statistical data for the contractor’s site personnel from OSHA 300 logs
  • Effectiveness in managing subcontractor’s safety performance
  • The contractor’s safety management system as it pertains to implementation of the CURT R-807 Construction Owner’s Safety Blueprint
  • Review of safety performance with three client companies for whom the constructor recently performed work

Gilbane Building Company and its job site safety programs were also recently honored by the Associated Builders and Contractors with its STEP Diamond Award. Given as part of its Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) program, the Diamond Award is the highest level recognition offered by this national construction industry association.
