JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Superior Construction, an American family-owned infrastructure contractor, received the American Road & Transportation Builders Association’s National Contractors Safety Award for its outstanding safety program. 

Superior was one of four contractors to receive the award nationwide and won in the mid-size category for companies with one million to three million personnel hours. The award was presented at the ARTBA’s annual convention in Nashville, Tennessee, in late September.

Created in 2007, the Contractor Safety Awards recognize companies that consistently maintain excellent safety records and publicize their best practices to promote worker safety throughout the industry. While most safety award programs are judged solely on the contractor’s accident and injury rates on work sites as reported to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the ARTBA program also considers the applicant’s insurance Experience Modification Rate (EMR). The top two companies in each category with the lowest recordable rate and EMR advance to the final judging stage.

Before a winner is selected, finalists are invited to present before a panel of judges. The winners are determined based on seven key principles demonstrated in their presentations, including management commitment, employee participation, incident investigation, audit procedures, safety planning, management review/implementation, and risk assessment.

To ensure fair and even comparisons in judging, awards are categorized by the number of employee hours worked during the previous year.
