21 Additional Firms Recognized for Program Participation to Advance Safety

Wednesday, November 13, 2019, Hallowell, Maine-The Associated General Contractors of Maine honored Maine contractors at their annual Safety Awards Dinner at Maple Hill Farm in Hallowell. Since 1926, the National AGC Safety Awards (NASA) program has been an ongoing effort to offer construction firms an opportunity to evaluate their safety record. NASA compares a firm’s safety record with other firms according to the size and construction type. Additionally, NASA provides a great opportunity for contractors to compete for nationally recognized awards that have excellent safety records. This year sixteen Maine firms received awards.
