The Gallegos Corporation Receives Safety Awards
The commitment of the employees at The Gallegos Corporation (TGC) to a safe work environment has been recognized and their efforts have earned three prestigious awards. In December, the company received safety awards from both the American Subcontractors Association of Colorado (ASAC) and the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC).
The ASCC recognized TGC for an incident rate that fell well below the national average. TGC’s incident rate in 2005 was 3.9; the national average was 4.6 among private industry, and 6.8 for masonry contractors. Reporting 775,841 man-hours in 2005, the corporation had only 16 injuries – far below the national average. Not a single accident was reported in several of the company’s divisions in 2005.
The ASAC bestowed TGC with two awards: the 2006 Excellence in Safety for a large company with more than 500,000 man-hours worked in one year, and the Most Improved Safety Program,for having an incident rate below the national average.
“I am proud of the initiative my employees take in practicing safe work procedures; and that every year our safety rates improve. These awards could never have been obtained without the hard work and dedication towards safety from our employees,” says Gerald Gallegos, CEO. “With insurance costs continuing to rise, it is essential that we maintain a safe workplace.”
