Current NUCA Safety Committee Chairman, L.D. Alexander (L) presented the award to Raymow President Bud Bradley.
Raymow Construction Co. Inc. of Oldsmar, Fla., has been awarded the National Utility Contractors Association’s (NUCA) 2008 William H. Feather Safety Award. Named after the first chairman of NUCA’s safety committee, the award recognizes those contractors that exemplify Feather’s passionate commitment to a safe workplace. The winners are chosen on the basis of injury frequency data, a safety statement and company program information in five categories established according to total man hours worked.
Raymow Construction Co. — the winner of the 0 to 100,000 man-hours category — has been in its own words “Accident Free Since ’93.” That means that in its 16-year existence the family-owned site and utility construction company has had no lost-time injuries while averaging approximately 50,000 man-hours worked per year. The foundation of the safety program is the owner, who communicates and reinforces the attitude that a safe workplace is essential no matter what the job and ensures that every worker has the training, apparel and gear to do his/her part in making that a reality.
The award presentation took place at the National Awards Breakfast held in conjunction with NUCA’s annual Washington Summit/Spring Board & Committee Meetings, May 18 to 20 at the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria, Va.
