NSEA 2023 Award | Poettker Construction

Poettker Construction today announced it has earned a National Safety Merit Award from Associated Builders and Contractors, which was presented at the 34th annual Excellence in Construction® Awards during ABC Convention 2024 in Orlando, Florida, on March 14.

Poettker Construction received a National Safety Merit Award for its continuous commitment to safety on the job. The award was presented to only 45 contractors nationwide.

“At Poettker Construction, we prioritize safety and health above all else,” said Charles Wilson, Vice President of Risk Management. “We are extremely proud to have maintained a flawless safety record on all of our projects, and we are fully committed to upholding safety excellence throughout our entire company. Whether it’s our top-level management or our workers on the job site, safety always remains our number one priority.”

The 2023 National Safety Merit Award winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum or Gold status in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System in 2023, reflective of their 2022 safety performance data. During the selection process, contractors were judged on self-evaluation scores, lost workday case rates, total recordable incident rates, leading indicator use, process and program innovations, and interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Health and Safety Committee.

“Safety isn’t just a value at Poettker; it’s at the core of everything we do,” emphasized Keith Poetter, Chairman and CEO of Poettker Construction Company. “We base all our actions and decisions on it, and we’re proud to say we’ve maintained a zero-accident performance on our projects. It’s something we absolutely refuse to compromise on, and we’re pleased to be recognized for it.

ABC’s STEP Safety Management System provides contractors and suppliers with a robust, no-cost framework for measuring safety data and benchmarking with peers in the industry. The self-assessment tool helps participants identify real opportunities for scalable growth in their safety programs to lower their total recordable incident rates.
