W. S. Bellows Wins Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Awards Grand Prize as 51 Other Companies Win Awards for Quality Construction Safety Programs

W.S. Bellows Construction Corp. of Houston, Texas was named the nation’s safest construction company in 2016 by the Associated General Contractors of America.  The association, which oversees the Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Awards, an annual ranking of construction safety programs, noted that 51 other companies were selected as winners for the quality of their safety programs.

"Workplace safety is essential to the success of any construction project and should not be taken for granted," said Mark Knight, the association’s past president and president of Knight Construction Services LLC in Aberdeen, S.D. "Firms like this prioritize and excel at workplace safety, making them tremendous role models for others to follow."

Knight said W.S. Bellows Construction was selected as this year’s Grand Prize winner because of its exceptional leadership in safety.  He noted that the company was dedicated to the development and implementation of premier safety and loss prevention programs.  The company presented outstanding guidance in safety and occupation health management, risk control, safety training, work site hazard identification and control, and safety program innovation, Knight added.

Knight noted that there are multiple winners because the awards are distributed for a number of categories, based on the size of the company, the amount of work performed and the type of work performed.  He added that the AGC-Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Award winners are selected by a panel of five independent safety professionals within the government, corporate and insurance industries.  Final judging for the awards program took place during the contractors’ association’s annual convention.
