Every year, the Southern California Contractors Association (SCCA) hosts its annual Safety Awards to recognize the achievements of those in the industry working to create safer, accident-free working environments and job sites. This year’s Safety Awards were held at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim, CA and looked back at all SCCA’s members accomplished in 2018. Los Angeles commercial concrete contractors and other contractors from across the region were in attendance, including The Conco Companies, who walked away with the Zero Accident 2018 award that evening.
Industry leaders: SCCA and Conco Pumping
SCCA is a longstanding membership organization that brings union-affiliated contractors in the construction industry together to foster superior industry standards by encouraging sound business methods, efficiency, and cooperation among contractors. The SCCA accomplishes this by hosting several membership meetings throughout the year and across southern California that provide opportunities for professional development and networking. In addition to these meetings and educational seminars, SCCA also provides legal, labor, and safety resources and advocacy for its members, as well as opportunities to celebrate those who are reaching the high construction industry standards the SCCA is working to promote.
TThe SCCA Safety Awards were created to recognize the members who have performed and excelled in accident prevention. SCCA understands the importance of safety within the construction industry, and believes an innovative safety culture, adherence to strict safety practices, and accident-free operations is worth celebrating. At this year’s Safety Awards, the Conco Companies was recognized with the Zero Accidents 2018 award for its stellar record, along with other companies that attained the same laudable accomplishment. Obtaining and maintaining an accident-free record is not an easy feat, as OSHA reports the average rate of recordable incidents within the industry to be multiple incidents per year, per contractor. Conco has worked to mitigate this risk within its own range of concrete services by utilizing a thorough accident prevention program and promoting the vision and initiatives of its safety teams. This combination of diligent safety practices and innovation helped make Conco a worthy candidate for industry recognition at the 2019 Safety Awards.
