The award program incentivizes construction firms to evaluate and improve existing safety standards. In order to qualify for a Safety Award, an AGC-member firm must participate in the AGC Safety Awards Program for three consecutive years and have either zero lost-day incidence cases, or an average incidence case rate 25% below the average rate of all firms that participate in that particular division.
This year the Clifford E. Simmons Award was awarded to  Marc Truant & Associates for achieving the closest to-but not over - 100,000 of recorded hours with the Best Safety Record Under 100,000 Hours.
