Lexington, Ky. | January 13, 2013
The Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Kentucky recently recognized W. Rogers Company's safety program as one of the top in Kentucky at the 2012 Annual Meeting, a ceremony dedicated to recognizing premier contractors and highlighting AGC's accomplishments.
W. Rogers Company was among the elite in the CHASE Program receiving the Blue Level Award. The CHASE program stands for Construction Health and Safety Excellence and is a partnership program with Kentucky OSHA to create and encourage safer workplaces.
The CHASE program requires contractors have an excellent safety record and receive inspections from AGC's Safety and Education Director and from a Kentucky OSHA representative. The three levels of recognition are Red, White and Blue. The Blue Level Award is the top award and is an honor that few in the industry have attained.
The Associated General Contractors of Kentucky have more than 600 members consisting of contractors, subcontractors and other firms. Out of AGC's many members only 12 firm's safety programs were recognized. W. Rogers Company was among six firms who received the top level recognition; only three of those six are general contractors.
This was not W. Rogers Company's first time receiving the Blue Level Award. In 2007, the Company was the first general contractor to ever receive this prestigious award.
"I am incredibly honored that W. Rogers Company received this recognition," Jim Fowler, WRC's safety director, said. "Our employees are so dedicated to safety and work so hard everyday to maintain a safe workplace. This award belongs to each and every W. Rogers Company employee."
