Indiana Safety Award Streak
December 8, 2015, 2:37 pmFor the 5th year in a row, Shook received the Gold Summit Safety Award from the Indiana Construction Association (ICA) in the category of highway, heavy & utility prime contractor with less than 100,000 hours. The ICA stated that we received this honor because we integrate safety core business practices in our estimating and delivery systems, as well as our real-time driver safety monitoring program. This award is significant in the construction industry and especially to our organization because it recognizes how well our jobsite personnel understand and apply our corporate safety program standards—all based on confidential surveys given to jobsite personnel. Our employees must indicate Shook’s safety program is best in class in order for the ICA to honor our efforts. The award once again confirms that our corporate management leads the safety efforts; and those efforts permeate into each of our field activities. We emphasize that every task should be performed safely–no matter how large or small that task is. Our company culture has created an environment where our employees can come to work knowing their ability to go home in the same condition is a way of life–not just a wish. Shook lives the culture that “Safely is the only way to work”!
