TxDOT Atlanta District Engineer Rebecca Wells and Safety Officer J.J. Singleton were presented the award by TxDOT Executive Director Marc Williams and Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) President Stacey Bryant at the annual AGC of Texas Bluebonnet Safety Awards ceremony in Austin.
TxDOT and the Associated General Contractors of Texas award the Texas Bluebonnet Safety Award to organizations taking steps to proactively lower incident rates to zero. The program compares the organization’s safety record with other comparable entities.
"Employee safety is one of our highest priorities every day we come to work, and we are honored to once again receive this award," Wells said. “Safety is the first component to putting out a great product for the traveling public."
“I’m so pleased to be part of the partnership between TxDOT and the AGC," Singleton said. "I’m extremely proud to work in the Atlanta District, where the emphasis is always on safety. The AGC provides a good opportunity to put safety first."
