POETTKER EARNS 2 HONORS FROM AMEREN
Poettker is recipient of Eagle Award and Best in Class – High Volume
Poettker Construction was presented with the Ameren-Contractor Eagle Award and the Ameren-Contractor Best in Class-High Volume Award for demonstrating outstanding safety performance on Ameren projects. The awards were presented at the annual Ameren/Contractor Safety Forum held virtually this year.
The Eagle Award is one of the highest levels of contractor recognition from Ameren’s annual recognition program, which is given to contractors who demonstrate outstanding safety performance throughout the year. Award criteria was based on several categories, including Lost Work Days Away (LWA), Total Recordable Incidence Rate (TRIR), Preventable Outage Rate, Near Miss/Good Catch Reporting, Trending Reports, Preventable Motor Vehicle Incident (PMVI), Safety Recognition Programs, etc.
Those who earn 95% of the total possible points are eligible to receive the Eagle Award. The award is only for transmission and distribution contracts. Poettker was the only civil construction contractor out of four Eagle Award recipients to receive the 2020 award.
Poettker also received the Ameren-Contractor Best in Class-High Volume Award, which is given to contractors that work more than 25,000 man hours on Ameren projects within a year. Contractors must achieve at least 85% of the total points available to earn a Best in Class Award.
“Safety is one of our core corporate values at Poettker Construction, and we could not achieve awards like this without the full support, safety work, and dedication from our leadership and corporate compliance team, down to project management, field supervision, and our self-perform workforce,” said Ryan Poettker, Executive Vice President and COO of Poettker Construction. “To be acknowledged by the Ameren Contractor Recognition Program is truly an honor, and we look forward to a continued safe and working relationship with Ameren for many years.”
Poettker’s partnership with Ameren Transmission and Distribution has been a major contributor to the company’s growth in the utility and infrastructure markets. In 2020, Poettker completed over 60 Ameren projects, including the construction at 33 substations and enhancements to 124 miles of transmission and distribution lines throughout Missouri and Illinois.
