  • Designed to benefit both large and small contractors alike
  • Recognition for ABC members at both National and Chapter level, with various recognition events held throughout the year
  • Can also lead National Safety Excellence Awards and Accredited Quality Contractor recognition

Rogers Award”, which is presented to those ABC chapters in each of ten divisions with the highest dollar amount above $50 per member company raised for ABC PAC and $100 per member company for the Free Enterprise Alliance.

This award was established in 2009 by the ABC PAC Board of Trustees and the Free Enterprise Alliance to honor the legacy of the late Joe M. Rodgers.

In 1976, he was elected ABC National Chairman.  Joe’s continuous dedication to the principles of free enterprise and his accomplishments in leading the initiative that turned ABC into a major political force as well as coining the phrase “Get Into Politics, or Get Out of Business” earned him recognition in 2000 as an ABC Leader of the Century.”

MAY 10, 2012
ISC CONSTRUCTORS, LLC –2012 “ROY COMEAUX SAFETY AWARD” RECIPIENT

ISC Constructors, LLC was the finalist in the Industrial Safety Training Councils Safety 16th Annual “Safety Excellence Through Training” Awards Banquet held May 10th at the Holiday Inn, Beaumont Plaza in Beaumont, Texas.

This annual award ceremony recognizes many of the Golden Triangle’s contractors for their safety training programs and ISC walked away with the most prestigious award of the night; the Roy Comeaux Safety Excellence Through Training Award.

In order to win this award the recipient must not only exhibit superior levels of consistent safety performance but also demonstrate and maintain remarkable levels of effort in their employee safety training programs.   

To qualify, contractor companies must provide the following information for review by the ISTC Awards Review Board, consisting of several of the local owner representatives. The award packet must include:

  • A recordable incident rate of 1.0 or better,
  • A copy of the company’s safety training program(s) for all employees,
  • A sample of training documentation (including tests and rosters) for each training program,
  • A copy of your company’s OSHA 300 logs for work done in the Gulf Coast area of Southeast Texas during the past five years, and
  • A letter from your insurance company verifying the Experience Modifier Rate.

Since the Beaumont office has maintained a recordable incident rate of zero (0) since 2009 locally along with the OSHA Logs and Insurance letter, those items were of easily attainable. However, in order to provide a complete company safety training program it took several hours and days to get that part of the submittal prepared. Our Regional Safety Coordinator, along with an Administrative Asst., copied all the programs, rosters and samples of the tests from all of ISC’s various safety training programs. This, along with organizing all the documentation into a professional look for ISC’s submittal, took the most time to prepare. In all we had five 3” 3-ring binders full of information for our awards submittal.

ISC not only won the Roy Comeaux Award for Safety Excellence through Training Award, but also received awards for:

100% Reduction in Incident Rate - averaged for the three previous calendar years,

Sustained Recordable Incident Rate – achieve a “zero” recordable incident rate for three consecutive years,

2 Million Manhours Worked – achieve 1,000,000 or more manhours without a lost workday case involving days away from work or a fatality,

7 years Worked – achieve one or more years (365 consecutive days) without a lost workday case involving days away from work or a fatality.

Needless to say, ISC – Beaumont Region is very proud of all its Safety Team and Field Safety Managers and the consistent efforts put forth to ensure our associates go home safe each and every day.

ISC’s Vice President- Beaumont Region, Craig Messer, stated, “We are very excited to be recognized by ISTC for our outstanding safety performance and training programs. Our team at ISC has grown here in the Golden Triangle and we feel that this very prestigious award validates the importance of our training programs for all employees.  We are honored to be the recipient of the 2012 Roy Comeaux Safety Excellence Through Training Award.”
