EL PASO, Texas – Jordan Foster Construction has been recognized for having the nation’s top construction safety and health program in 2023 by the Associated General Contractors of America.

The association, which oversees the prestigious Construction Safety Excellence Awards – an annual ranking of construction safety and health programs – noted that 57 other companies were also selected as winners for their commitment to safety and occupational health management and risk control.

“The firms’ commitment to safety is lifesaving and we want to acknowledge and honor that achievement,” said Todd Roberts, the association’s senior vice president and president of ERS Inc. in Jackson, Miss.  “Jordan Foster Construction is finding new, innovative and effective ways to overcome the construction industry’s safety and health challenges.”

Jordan Foster Construction was judged and selected as the grand award winner from among 21 first-place winners across six occupational divisions. Roberts noted there are multiple winners because the awards are distributed for several divisions and categories, based on the amount and type of work performed. CSEA winners, he said, are selected by a panel of five independent safety and health professionals within the construction industry. Finals judging for the awards program took place during the contractors’ association’s annual convention in San Diego, Calif.
