Contractor from Virginia Receives 2021 ARTBA National Contractor Safety Awards

LIBERTYVILLE, IL — A transportation construction company from Virginia was recognized for its outstanding employee safety program during the American Road & Transportation Builders Association’s (ARTBA) Annual Convention, held in Pinehurst, North Carolina. W-L Construction & Paving, Inc. from Chilhowie, Virginia, won in the under 500,000 personnel hours category.

The annual ARTBA Contractor Safety Awards were created to promote worker safety and health as core values of the transportation design and construction industry.

The contractor finalists were competitively selected, based upon their accident and injury rates on work sites as reported to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), their Experience Modification Rates as determined by their insurance carriers, and their safety programs. Finalists from three different categories, based on the personnel hours worked in the previous year, were invited to make a presentation before a panel of industry judges.

Winners were selected based on demonstration of key principles of safety excellence including management commitment, employee participation, incident investigation, auditing, planning, and risk assessment.

The size categories are companies with less than 500,000 personnel hours worked in the previous year; 500,000 to 1 million; and over 1 million hours.
