Weston & Sampson is pleased to announce we are among the recipients of a 2021 National Safety Award from the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). The award was presented at today’s AGC MA’s Annual Safety Awards Brunch at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, MA, and reflects an “outstanding commitment to safety in the construction industry.” Peter Kolokithas, President of Weston & Sampson Services, and Mick Brown, Health & Safety Manager, were on hand to accept the award, which notes a zero incidence rate for 425,000 work hours and over.
With more than 750 staff, working in design, engineering, construction, and operations, in conjunction with our Health & Safety division, we are proud of the record of safety we sustain.
Weston & Sampson considers the health and safety of our employees, clients, and subcontractors as our most important responsibility. As such, we are committed to ensuring a safe workplace in our own offices, at project sites, and at our clients’ facilities.
