CEC implemented the Safety Excellence Awards in 2017 to recognize CEC offices for their proactive efforts in improving corporate safety culture and safety performance by completion of required safety training, project planning, and safe performance of projects.
This was our fifth year of the competition. The award for Small Offices (<100,000 man-hours) was presented to CEC Athens. The award for Large Offices (100,000+ man-hours) was presented to CEC Bridgeport. Both are first-time recipients of the award. Athens earned a score of 105%, while Bridgeport topped out at 105.3%.

This year, five offices scored 100+%, 13 of 24 offices received 10 extra credit points, and 17 of 24 offices scored 90+ points.
