TAUC Contractors Recognized for Exemplary Year in Safety

The Thomas J. Reynolds Awards for Excellence in Construction Safety and Health were created more than 2 decades ago to recognize and commend the exceptional efforts made by TAUC contractor members to prevent the occurrence of serious injury or worse on the jobsite. Along with TAUC's Craftsperson Awards and the National Maintenance Agreements Policy Committee's (NMAPC) Zero Injury Safety Awards (ZISA) these awards are presented to union contractors whose number one goal on the jobsite is safety.

The winners in each category are determined by the lowest Lost Time Frequency in each category. Participants who have achieved a Lost Time Frequency of 25% or below the BLS National Average in 2007, but who are not the lowest in their particular award category, receive a Certificate of Achievement to acknowledge their accomplishments.

TAUC had seventy-one (71) members submit for the Thomas J. Reynolds Safety Awards, with their total hours worked at more than one hundred and thirty nine (139) million and only one hundred and forty four (144) days away from work cases! The average lost time incident rate of the award winners was an astounding .25 for 2007, well under the BLS National Average of 2.4.

This year's awards ceremony took place at TAUC's 2008 Leadership Conference in Miami, Florida and were presented in four different hours worked categories as well as certificates of achievement.
