Will Hodges, President of Cadence McShane Construction Company, is pleased to announce that the firm has received a National Certificate of Safety Excellence Award within the Building Division by The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) at the 2014 National Convention held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Cadence McShane Construction’s safety programs and implementation practices are managed under the guidance of industry veteran John Schmidt, who serves as the firm’s Director of Safety and Environmental Compliance.
“We are honored to have been named a finalist for this year’s AGC Safety Awards,” remarked Schmidt. “I would like to thank the entire Cadence McShane team for their constant attention towards safety. As one of the most critical aspects of our business, we will continue to uphold our safety standards and procedures to ensure continued success both on and off our job sites.”
AGC has recognized contractor members for safety achievements since 1926. Today, the AGC’s safety awards are considered one of the industry’s most prestigious safety recognition programs in the United States.
Cadence McShane Construction was recognized as a finalist in the AGC Member Category, Building Construction 100,001-250,000 man hours. The distinction was based upon their award-winning safety program, above-average safety record and their consecutive participation in the award competition.
“Cadence McShane regards safety as a critical element of our overall business plan and not just a component of our field operations,” explained Hodges. “We are delighted that our comprehensive emphasis on safety throughout our company has resulted in the receipt of this notable award from The Associated General Contractors of America. John Schmidt has been a leader within our company and the industry, and his work has improved safety for everyone. I am so proud of every Cadence McShane employee for their commitment to our safety program.”
