Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) was recently recognized for having one of the nation’s top construction safety and health programs in 2022 by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

The AP Mountain States team accepted the award in Las Vegas in March and was recently honored by the Colorado Chapter of AGC at the Chapter’s Breakfast with the Board session at the Hyatt Regency in Denver. Accepting the award were Justin Chivers, Regional Safety Director and Jeremy Hakes. AP was also recognized as a qualified Colorado Stormwater Excellence Program (CSEP) member and a white-level participant in the Construction Health & Safety Excellence program.

“I’m proud of the team that competed and presented our safety program. This recognition goes beyond our safety numbers, it helps demonstrate that we take the safety and total human health of our employees seriously and that AP is doing everything we can to ensure our people make it home from the jobsite each and every day,” said Herrera.

AP was judged and selected as the third-place winner in the Building (GC only)/Construction Management division | 400,000 – 600,000 work hours.

“This national recognition is affirming of our continued efforts to reduce and manage risk on our project sites. We are humbled by all our teammate’s efforts that are reflected in this recognition. Our continued forward focus is toward the prevention and elimination of serious injury and fatality exposures,” added Chivers.

National AGC-WTW Construction Safety Excellence Awards winners are selected by a panel of five independent safety and health professionals within the construction industry. Finals judging for the awards program took place during the contractors’ association’s March annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. AGC, which oversees the prestigious AGC-WTW Construction Safety Excellence Awards, an annual ranking of construction safety and health programs, noted that only 47 other companies were also selected as winners for their commitment to safety and occupational health management and risk control.
