The Associated Builders and Contractors has awarded the Safway Services Laurel, Md., branch a gold-level Safety Training and Evaluation Process Award for achieving zero OSHA-recordable incidents in 2013.

“Receiving a STEP Award is a team accomplishment,” said Don Allen, Laurel branch manager. “Regional safety manager Tim Miller; Dallas Luttrel, our construction manager, and Mike Earle, our operations manager, are continuously teaching, correcting and monitoring best practices. But, ultimately, the foremen and supervisors in the field deserve the credit for owning our safety culture and disseminating the 10 Life-Saving Rules throughout their crews.”

Safway Group, with more than 90 branches in North America, is headquartered in Waukesha, Wis.
