2015 ABC Natl Safety Excl Award

BARGERSVILLE, IN, March 3, 2016 – CMS Corporation (CMS) has been named the winner of a National Safety Excellence Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC). CMS received the award March 2 during the 26th annual Excellence in Construction® Awards in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

“CMS’s safety record demonstrates how a company-wide commitment to safety, one of our core values, can deliver outstanding results,” said CMS CEO Ernest Enrique. “CMS’s safety record illustrates that our corporate culture emphasizes safety and cares for our people – our greatest asset. We believe every incident is preventable and we commit to do our part to help drive the construction industry toward zero-incident job sites. Our ultimate goal is that every employee returns home in the same—or better—condition in which they arrived.”

The 2015 National Safety Excellence Award winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum and Gold status in ABC’s Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP). During the selection process, national safety winners were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations, and video interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Environment, Health & Safety Committee. CMS was one of 20 firms nationwide to receive this prestigious award.

The National Safety Awards are presented in three major North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code categories: NAICS 236 – Construction of Buildings; NAICS 237 – Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction; and NAICS 238 – Specialty Trade Contractors.
