Jordan Foster Construction of El Paso, Texas, won the grand prize in AGC’s Construction Safety Excellence Awards (CSEA), as 57 other companies won awards for their commitment to safety and occupational health management and risk control.

Jordan Foster Construction was judged and selected as the grand award winner from among 21 first-place winners across six occupational divisions.

“The firms’ commitment to safety is lifesaving and we want to acknowledge and honour that achievement,” said Todd Roberts, the association’s senior vice president and president of ERS Inc. in Jackson, Mississippi.  “They are finding new, innovative and effective ways to overcome the construction industry’s safety and health challenges.”

Roberts noted that there were multiple winners because the awards are distributed for several divisions and categories, based on the amount and type of work performed. He added that the CSEA winners are selected by a panel of five independent safety and health professionals within the construction industry. Finals judging for the awards program took place during the contractors’ association’s annual convention in San Diego, California.
