2011 has already been a monumental year for Welliver in terms of recognition for safety achievements. The construction management firm has recently received its fourth consecutive Safety Excellence Award from the Associated General Contractors of New York State. Each year contractors from across the state apply for this award, which has become a benchmark for safety practices in the industry. Welliver received the award for working more than 225,000 hours in the field with no major accidents, fatalities, OSHA violations or lost time.
When it comes to lost time, the company also celebrated working more than one million hours with no lost time. This remarkable achievement is due in part to the comprehensive safety program Welliver enacts, which includes annual training, monthly meetings and holding everyone accountable on the job site.
“We are so proud to receive recognition for our safety program by the AGC again this year. It is a high standard we hold ourselves to each year. Our one million hours speak highly of how we feel about safety in our company and it is quite the accomplishment for our team,” said Chairman/CEO Scott Welliver.
A group of 14 Welliver employees recently graduated from the company’s OSHA 30-Hour Certification class. OSHA classes are conducted annually by Welliver trainers. This ensures that construction projects are staffed with individuals who have current, high-level certifications.
Based in the Southern Tier, Welliver currently is completing projects throughout the region in Rochester, Ithaca, Skaneateles, Penn Yan, Elmira, Hornell, Corning and Sayre, N.Y. and Wellsboro, Pa.
