Perry Engineering wins

Perry Engineering Co. has been awarded third place in the Willis Towers Watson Construction Safety Excellence Awards, presented by the Associated General Contractors of America.

This marks the third win for the Frederick County-based company in the last three years. Perry Engineering is one of only two companies in Virginia to win this year.

Bob Lanham, the association’s president and president of Williams Brothers Construction Co. in Houston, said Perry Engineering was selected as a third-place national winner because of its exceptional leadership in safety. He noted that the firm developed and implemented a safety and risk control program through continuous improvement and maintenance. Lanham noted that Perry Engineering’s commitment to protecting its most valuable asset, its workers, makes it a leader in the industry.

To enter the contest, the company had to submit a 56-page application that explains its safety program “in exquisite detail.” That gets submitted to the AGC, and the organization does a preliminary review of the applications before selecting finalists. Once finalists are chosen, a five-person panel determines winners at the AGC’s national convention, held in Orlando this year.

Only three finalists are selected in the Safety and Risk Management category in the 200,000 man hours-worked division, which is Perry Engineering’s category.
