Four North Texas companies honored for safety


Irving-based Austin Bridge & Road, Grand Prairie-based Polk Mechanical, Irving-based Ridgemont Commercial Construction and Dallas-based Rogers-O’Brien Construction were honored for having some of the nation’s best construction safety and wellness plans in 2019 by the Associated General Contractors of America, the organization said in a news release.
The association, which oversees the Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Awards, an annual ranking of construction safety programs, said 53 other companies were also selected as winners for the quality of their safety programs.
“Now more than ever, there’s no more fundamental responsibility for a construction firm than to ensure the health and safety of its workers,” said Dirk Elsperman, the association’s president and executive vice president and chief operations officer of Tarlton Corporation in St. Louis, Mo. “These award recipients have implemented innovative and successful practices to safeguard job sites and protect workers.”
