Boston, MA, August 8, 2017 – Gilbane Building Company was recently honored by the Associated General Contractors of Massachusetts at its annual Safety Breakfast, sponsored by AON Construction Services Group, held at the Boston College Club.

Through a progressive safety program, Gilbane continues to raise the bar by applying innovative processes, checks and balances and the latest technology. Combined with its award-winning training programs, Gilbane empowers employees and project partners to embrace a true safety culture based on people, not statistics.

“At Gilbane, the safety actions of employees and co-workers are driven from choice, not just from formal compliance,” notes Dennis Mullen, Gilbane’s New England Safety Director.   “We are honored to have been recognized for the accomplishments of our Massachusetts team who exemplify what can be accomplished when everyone is committed to establishing a culture of safety.”

The National Safety Award recognizes firms that have developed and successfully implemented industry-leading safety standards across its portfolio of work. The award program incentivizes construction firms to evaluate and improve existing safety standards. In order to qualify for a Safety Award, an AGC-member firm must participate in the AGC Safety Awards Program for three consecutive years and have either zero lost-day incidence cases, or an average incidence case rate 25% below the average rate of all firms that participate in that particular division.
