JE Dunn Named One of Nation's Safest Construction Companies by National Contractors Group

KANSAS CITY, MO — JE Dunn was honored for having one of the nation’s best construction safety and health plans in 2020 by the Associated General Contractors of America. The association, which oversees the Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Awards, an annual ranking of construction safety programs, noted that 56 other companies were also selected as winners for the quality of their safety programs.

"Now more than ever, there's no more fundamental responsibility for a construction firm than to ensure the health and safety of its workers," said Dirk Elsperman, the association’s President and Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer of Tarlton Corporation.  "These award recipients have implemented innovative and successful practices to safeguard job sites and protect workers."

Elsperman said JE Dunn was selected as a first place winner because of its exceptional leadership in safety. The company presented outstanding guidance in safety and occupational health management, risk control, safety training, work site hazard identification and control, and safety program innovation, Elperman added.

Elsperman noted that there are multiple winners because the awards are distributed for a number of categories, based on the amount and type of work performed. He added that the AGC-Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Award winners are selected by a panel of five independent safety professionals within the government, corporate, and insurance industries.
