Turner Industries Receives Two National ‘Excellence’ Awards

Turner Industries representatives accepted multiple national awards at the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) 23rd annual Excellence in Construction awards celebration in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. on February 20th.

Turner was selected as the recipient of the 2012 National Safety Excellence Award in the NAICS – 237 – Heavy and Civil Engineering Contractor category. The award is based on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations and interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Environment, Health & Safety Committee.

Turner also accepted the National Excellence in Construction Eagle Award in the Industrial – $10-25 Million category for the work performed on the Total Petrochemicals Expansion project in Carville, La. Turner received this award at the local ABC chapter level earlier this year.

Michael D. Bellaman, ABC’s President and Chief Executive Officer, spoke of Turner, saying, “Turner Industries Group has truly shown a dedication to becoming one of the leaders for the industry by striving to create the safest work environment possible for its employees.”
