QUOIN/AGC Safety Resource Leadership Group Elects Sideris

Sun March 02, 2008 - West Edition

Dino Sideris, safety director of Bob Moore Construction, has been elected vice chairman of the safety resource leadership group for QUOIN, the north and east Texas chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

QUOIN’s safety resource leadership group is the senior safety-related working committee in the chapter. It is comprised of 15 to 20 safety professionals, and serves to drive safety, health and environmental excellence in the construction industry.

Sideris was elected to the position by the members of the group. He will serve in this capacity through 2008 and will assume the chairman position in 2009.

“It’s a great privilege to serve in a leadership position with the safety resource leadership group,” said Sideris.

“QUOIN is our region’s leading champion for construction safety and the safety resource leadership group is QUOIN’s most influential committee. The group has established some aggressive goals for 2008. By this time next year I expect that north and east Texas will have a better trained, safer work force of construction professionals as a result of the group’s efforts, and I take great pride in being a part of that.”

In 2008, the safety resource leadership group will work to improve QUOIN’s broad range of training programs; establish and expand partnerships with OSHA and EPA; develop a badge system to identify worker training accomplishments; and identify and develop resources to address safety trends.

“Dino Sideris is a true leader when it comes to construction safety,” said Ed McGuire, vice president of construction for Bob Moore Construction. “He has crafted a safety program for our company that earns top ratings from insurance carriers and OSHA and has earned us a membership in the local OSHA Partnership program. The Safety Resource Leadership Group could not have made a better choice for their vice chairman position.”

The AGC is the oldest and largest organization in the construction industry, going back to 1919. With more than 1,100 member companies, QUOIN is the AGC chapter for a large portion of Texas from Dallas/Fort Worth east to the Louisiana border and north to the Oklahoma border.
