Our safety judges considered a project’s overall safety program, OSHA recordable incident rate, lost time accident rate and total man hours on the job. Because ENR California received over 100 entries for our 2019 Best Projects competition, we divided the region into two: Northern California and Southern California, which includes Hawaii.
This year's independent panel of safety experts included:
- Michael Stelmasek, Safety Director, Bernards
- Pat Callahan, Senior Vice President of Operations, Hathaway Dinwiddie
All winning project teams — as well as our Owner of the Year, Design Firm of the Year, Contractor of the Year, Specialty Contractor of the Year and Legacy Award winner — will also be celebrated at two events this fall. In San Francisco, ENR’s Regional Best Awards is on Tuesday, Oct. 8. In Los Angeles, the awards presentation is on Thursday, Oct. 10. Register here for San Franciscoand here for Los Angeles!
Congratulations to all our winners!
