On November 6, Shawn Connick (Director of Safety), Ashley Hogue (Marketing & Communications Manager), and the Pankow team recieved the prestigious Gary E. Bird Horizon Award at the 37th IRMI Construction Risk Conference (CRC). The award recognized the team for developing The 8 Lethal Hazards booklet to create better awareness and understanding of the 8 most dangerous hazards in the construction industry.
“Pankow showed that with some significant focus, any company could take the concepts of serious injury or fatality and apply it to their own company by refocusing the safety program,” said Travelers Vice President of Construction Jennifer Lee. “Their focus on the exposures that could potentially drive their most serious losses is a process that any construction company could use.”
"The recognition will also help drive SIF and the principals of continuous improvement, including building a culture of identification, recognition and mitigating steps for preventing serious injuries and fatalities." - Michael Overholt from ACIG
