Kelly-Hill Company Wins Two Safety Awards in 2013 Builders’ Association Safety Excellence Awards Program

Riverside, MO – The 2013 Builders’ Association Safety Excellence Program has announced Kelly-Hill Company as the First Place Award Winner in the Subcontractor Division for 50,001-150,00 work hours, as well as the Grand Award Winner for all Divisions for best overall safety program. These awards represent The Builders’ Association, Missouri Department of Labor Standards, Kansas Department of Labor, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Kansas City Office. The awards were presented at the Seventh Annual Builders’ Association Safety Excellence Awards Program Breakfast on Thursday, March 13, 2014 at the Adams Pointe Conference Center in Blue Springs, Missouri.

Kelly-Hill Company received this prestigious honor due to their “Common Sense” Approach to Safety. They have gone more than five years and three months without a reportable incident. The “Common Sense” Approach is applied by having dedicated training sessions, daily safety meetings, tool box talks, and simply the pride all of the employees take in being safe. With an average of more than 135,000 production hours a year, Kelly-Hill Company is a leader in safety programs.

This is the second and third safety awards received by Kelly-Hill Company this year, as they were recognized by the National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association (NRC) in January as a Gold Level Safety Organization.
