The National Insulation Association (NIA) recently announced that APi Construction Co. is the winner of the 2014 Theodore H. Brodie Distinguished Platinum Level Safety Award. The award is NIA's top industry honor for outstanding dedication to safety performance, and it is designed to recognize NIA members that take proactive steps to implement safe work environments.
"It is an honor to be selected for this award. This is a great achievement for our employees and truly demonstrates everyone's continued support and commitment to work safely together everyday," said Jerry Pederson, vice president of APi Construction.
Winners are determined on the basis of company safety programs and policies, company safety statement, and the company practices regarding new employee orientation, daily jobsite safety compliance, safety incentive program, and the disciplinary action program.
APi Construction's safety program, STEPS (Striving Toward Excellence and Professionalism in Safety), promotes safety culture awareness throughout the company. STEPS is a living program that constantly seeks improvement to reduce the risk of injuries for all employees. A sample of the prevention initiatives that APi Construction has undergone include a daily stretching program, the use of blunt-head insulation pins, advanced eye protection, and comprehensive daily huddles that encourage safety alertness.
APi Construction's Vice Presidents, Pederson and Mark Udager, received the Theodore H. Brodie Platinum Level award at the NIA convention in late March.
The award is named after former NIA president, Theodore H. Brodie, in recognition of his dedication and commitment to safety.
