At California Drywall, safety is an essential element of the success and well-being of our organization. We are committed to providing a safe work environment for our employees, as well as our clients and suppliers.
On April 6, 2011 California Drywall received recognition for their safety achievements, winning the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry's (AWCI) 2011 Excellence in Construction Safety Award for a company with more than 300,000 hours. The AWCI safety award gives national recognition to a contractor member who manages an effective safety program in a given year.
After reviewing applicants from across the nation, AWCI's Industry Awards Committee selected California Drywall on the basis of injury and health frequency rate data, experience modifier, safety statement and company safety-program information. The award was presented in Las Vegas at AWCI's Convention.
As a point of reference, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) U.S. Department of Labor latest estimates (2007) of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses (Total Recordable Cases) for Drywall and Insulation contractors (NAICS code 23831) was 5.9.
Our accomplishments result directly from the efforts of all our employees working together toward the common goal of a safe, incident-free workplace. Because of their efforts, we have created a safety program that exeeds the expectations of our customers.
In 2009, California Drywall also was awarded Golden Gate Partner Recognition by CAL/OSHA which recognized the company's efforts in implementing and maintaining an effective injury and illness prevention program at the Three Sixty Residence project.
