Excellence Awards, an

annual ranking of

construction safety

programs, noted that

51 other companies were

selected as winners for the

quality of their safety

programs.

"Safety is always a top

priority for the construction

industry," said Joseph H.

Jarboe, the association's

president and senior vice

president of Bethesda, Md.-

based Clark Construction

Group. "These companies

showcase the highest

commitment to keeping

their projects and

their employees safe."

Jarboe said

Opp Construction

was selected as this year's

Grand Prize winner

because of its exceptional

leadership in safety.

He noted that the company

was dedicated to the

development and

implementation of premier

safety and loss

prevention programs. The

company presented

outstanding guidance in

safety and occupation

health management,

risk control, safety

training, work site hazard

identification and control,

and safety program

innovation.

Jarboe noted that there

are multiple winners

because the awards are

distributed for a number of

categories, based on the

size of the company, the

amount of work performed

and the type of work

performed.

He added that the

AGC-Willis Construction

Safety Excellence Award

winners are selected by a

panel of five independent

safety professionals within

the government, corporate

and insurance industries.

Final judging for the awards

program took place during

March's annual convention

for the contractors'

association.
