Perry Engineering wins
Perry Engineering Co. won third place in the Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Awards, awarded by Associated General Contractors of America.
This is the Frederick County company’s third victory in the past three years. Perry Engineering is one of only two companies in Virginia to win this year.
Bob Lanham, association president and president of Williams Brothers Construction Co. in Houston, said Perry Engineering was selected as the national third place winner because of his exceptional leadership in safety. He noted that the company has developed and implemented a safety and risk control program through continuous improvement and maintenance. Lanham noted that Perry Engineering’s commitment to protecting its most valuable asset, its workers, makes it a leader in the industry.
To enter the competition, the company had to submit a 56-page application that explains its safety program “in great detail.” This is submitted to the MCO, and the organization performs a preliminary review of the applications before selecting the finalists. Once the finalists are chosen, a five-person panel determines the winners at the AGC’s national convention, held in Orlando this year.
Only three finalists are selected in the Safety and Risk Management category in the 200,000 person-hours worked division, which is the category of Perry Engineering.
Live screenings letting people know their risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and other serious chronic diseases will be offered on November 3 at the American Legion Post 77, 157 E. Washington St., Strasbourg.
