"World-class safety is what we encourage our members to strive for and many of them get to this level," said John Mielke. "It's important to recognize when contractors and their employees are committed to safety so all contractors in the state, no matter how large or small, put safety into the culture."  

The most prestigious awards earned through ABC of Wisconsin are the Safety Awards of Excellence. These are presented to one member in each of the three categories: Small Contractor, Mid-Size Contractor and Large Contractor. These companies must have incident rates for total OSHA recordables and lost work day cases at least 25 percent better than the industry average. In addition, the winners must have a model safety program and an impressive past safety record.

The 2018 Safety Awards of Excellence were presented to:

Smaller Contractor - Under 50,000 Hours Worked
JRT Top Notch Roofs, Saukville 

Mid-Size Contractor – 50,000 to 200,000 Hours Worked

Larger Contractor – Over 200,000 Hours Worked

In addition, 31 member companies were presented with the Platinum Award of Honor for zero recordable incidents in the entire calendar year 2018, 16 companies received the Gold Safety Award of Honor for lost workday cases and total OSHA recordables being equal to or better than the construction industry average as stated in the BLS, and 13 companies received No Lost Time Accident Awards (no lost time accidents in 2018).
