Skill, responsibility and safety are paramount in the construction and repair of highways, bridges, utility trenches and other jobs involving "heavy" work and equipment. Member companies of The Heavy Constructors Association of Greater Kansas City have been recognized for their efforts with workers’ safety. 

The Association recently named the recipients of its annual Heavy Constructors Association Safety Awards, which are earned by those member companies who have achieved the lowest workplace incident rate among Association contractors in their class. The incident rate is based on data reported to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). 

Edward DeSoignie, Executive Director of the Association, points out that the awards are more than just decoration for the member company’s walls. “The Safety Awards are given each year to recognize the attention and efforts devoted to worker safety by our member companies,” he explained.  This year’s recipients are:

Class A (More than 400,000 annual work hours):
Clarkson Construction Company, Kansas City, MO.

Class B (200,000 to 399,999 annual work hours):
