Thompson Engineering Safety Program Receives National Recognition  

POSTED ON 3/28/22

Thompson Engineering announced today it has earned two Associated Builders and Contractors awards for its safety program.

Thompson Engineering received the National Safety Merit Award at ABC’s 32nd annual Excellence in Construction Awards at the ABC 2022 Convention in San Antonio March 16. “A national safety excellence merit award is something to celebrate because it proves to the organizations we work with that our safety program is top tier,” said Mike Shumaker, safety director for Thompson Engineering. “It shows that our employees are dedicated to safe work habits every day.”

Winners were selected from ABC member firms that achieved Diamond, Platinum or Gold status in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System in 2021. 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 video interviews conducted by members of ABC’s National Health and Safety Committee.  Click here to see a complete list of Safety Excellence award winners.
