2017 Safe Day

THIS YEAR'S SAFE DAY HAS EXPANDED! Safe Day 2017 will open with safety seminars beginning at 8:00am. The Annual Safest in the Industry Awards will be recognized during lunch and the day will conclude with the OSHA Stand Down Workshop.

Safe Day helps bring safety awareness to the forefront of the construction industry. In the spirit of growing the event, AGC Alabama and ABC have partnered, and members of both associations will be in attendance. It is a known fact that this event not only recognizes excellence in safety, but that it also saves lives. There are no secrets in safety, and we believe this partnership will only enhance the event and highlight the excellent strides the construction
industry has made in safety.

The 2017 Safe Day Awards showcase companies that have outstanding corporate safety and health plans and exhibit superior safety initiatives. One select professional will be honored as the Safety Director of the Year. This year’s awards luncheon will be held on Friday, May 5 at the Sheraton Birmingham Hotel Conference Center.

For those interested in applying for this award, please follow the below instructions for the online application. Submissions are due byApril 7, 2017.

All entry applications will be submitted online.  No binders please

New This Year - Stay Tuned!

A meeting is in the works to be held late February for new and returning Safe Day Awards applicants.  Previous judges and Eagle winners have been invited.  Judges have been asked to discuss what they look for when reviewing a Safe Day Award entry.  This will be a great opportunity to network with other Safety Professionals and pick their brains for hints and tips as well.  Stay tuned for more information on this important meeting!

To ensure that companies are evaluated along side companies of like size and to encourage more participation from ABC member companies, there will be two categories of entry for contractors this year.  The categories are based on 2015 annual revenue.  Each company entering the Safest in the Industry Awards must select the ONE category they best fit into. While the Safest in the Industry Awards should be used as a tool to help improve your safety and health programs, we hope the new categories will encourage small and mid-sized contractors to enter without feeling like they cannot compete against the larger companies.  This year an Eagle Award will be awarded in all three categories of entry!  

  • Contractor Category 1: $0-$10million
  • Contractor Category 2: $10- over$250million
  • Other Category 3: Other (Engineer, Supplier, Etc.)
