ENR’s Excellence in Safety Award is now in its fifth year as part of the annual regional Best Projects competition. This year, ENR Texas & Louisiana is singling out five projects for their outstanding safety records and job-site procedures.

Our safety judges reviewed more than 50 entries, considering many factors in their decisions, including a project’s overall safety program, OSHA recordable incident rate, lost time accident rate as well as total man hours on the job.

ENR Texas & Louisiana’s 2016 Excellence in Safety Award goes to the Baybrook Mall Expansion, submitted by Hoar Construction.

Another four projects were also selected to receive Excellence in Safety Awards of Merit.

ENR Texas & Louisiana will feature more about these projects, along with our other Best Projects winners in the October 17 print edition. Our safety winners will also be recognized at the Texas & Louisiana Best Projects Luncheon on Oct. 19 in Houston.

Congratulations to this year’s safety winners, listed below!
