Brasfield & Gorrie strives to be the safest general contractor in every market we serve. Because safety is our top corporate value, our emphasis on safety is evident on every project we build.
Instead of simply complying with regulatory standards, we aggressively pursue excellence in construction safety. We are an Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Accredited Quality Contractor and regularly receive top safety honors and awards. For the past 17 years, ABC has ranked us in the top three tiers for its Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) award. In 2015 and 2018, we received ABC’s highest STEP award, the Diamond Award. In addition, in 2014 and 2017 we earned Southern Company’s Triangle Safety Award for achieving high thresholds of safety performance—an award presented to only a small percentage of contractors every year.
As part of our pursuit of safety excellence, we believe strongly in the value of partnering with regulatory agencies. We were the first contractor in the Southeast to partner with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in a Strategic Partnership Program on a construction project, the Georgia Aquarium. Since then, we have participated in numerous additional OSHA partnerships.
Brasfield & Gorrie’s senior management is committed to providing an industry-leading safety, health, and environmental management system to foster a strong and encompassing safety culture throughout the company. Our SEE IT, OWN IT, SHARE IT initiative reflects our emphasis on the essential role each of us plays in reaching our corporate goal of zero incidents on all of our projects. SEE IT, OWN IT, SHARE IT encourages each employee to take personal ownership of safety.
