Bob Moore Construction has received the Certificate of Recognition and Zero Lost Time Accident Achievement Award from the Tilt-up Concrete Association (TCA).

The Certificate of Recognition was awarded in recognition of Bob Moore Construction maintaining an incident rate below the national average for structure contractors, as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Zero Lost Time Accident Achievement Award recognizes the success of the general contractor’s safety program, which resulted in zero incidents for 2006.

“We’re very pleased to receive this recognition from the Tilt-up Concrete Association,” said Dino Sideris, safety director of Bob Moore Construction.

“Our efforts over the past three years have resulted in what we feel is a superb safety program that serves as a model for other companies to pattern their programs after. We’re expanding the impact of our program to the community by supporting industry safety working groups and committees, coordinating with local and state governments on safety-related matters, and supporting OSHA by providing training to subcontractors and other general contractors throughout the state. Our goal is to make all job sites safer, and not just our own.

“It’s gratifying to receive this recognition from the TCA,” said Ed McGuire, vice president of construction, Bob Moore Construction.

“The TCA plays a crucial role in establishing and improving the standards for all aspects of commercial construction. Their efforts will further improve the safety of job sites across the United States, and it’s gratifying to have an important and influential organization like TCA identify our program as being worthy of nationally recognized awards like these.”

These awards follow Bob Moore Construction’s selection as an OSHA Local Partner earlier in 2007; membership to the exclusive local partnership program is limited to companies with the most comprehensive and proactive safety programs; Bob Moore Construction is only the fifth general contractor in all of North Texas to be invited into this program.

The Tilt-Up Concrete Association was founded in 1986 by a dedicated group of contractors, professionals, and manufacturers with the interest of improving the quality and acceptance of Tilt-Up construction. The mission of the Tilt-Up Concrete Association is to expand and improve the use of Tilt-Up as the preferred construction method by providing education and resources that enhance quality and performance.
