MOBILE, AL (September 8, 2016) ­­ White-Spunner Construction Inc. (WSC), a leading contractor in the Southeast and ranked 19th largest general contractor in Alabama in 2015 by Business  Alabama,  recently received two high level safety awards continuing its long tradition as a leader in workplace safety in Alabama and the region. The awards recognize companies who have developed and implemented a safety culture through management commitment, employee involvement, and program innovation.

"It’s an honor to be recognized for our continued commitment to safety,” said John White-Spunner, President, and CEO of White-Spunner Construction. "We value the health and safety of each person involved in our projects.”

The most recent awards from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) include:

· 2016 Safest in the Industry Gold Award

· 2016 Platinum Level STEP Award

For years, the Mobile, AL-based company, whose services include general contracting, build-to-suit, design-build, and construction management, has maintained an excellent safety record. In 2015, more than 175,000 hours were worked without a lost-time incident, bringing the company's overall total to 2.425 million consecutive safe hours worked year-to-date.

For more than two years, White-­Spunner Construction’s Safety Director, Ross Moyer, has played a key role in ensuring employees and subcontractors know the importance of maintaining proper precautionary measures. "We educate and encourage our employees on ways to remain safe and healthy, not just on the job, but outside of work while at home with their families,” he said.  (Photo: Ross Moyer)

"Utilizing technology, new inspection techniques, and innovative new ideas, we’ve been able to take the next step with our safety program. The real driving force has been the employees of White-Spunner Construction and their true dedication to the culture of safety that we have developed. Our company maintains an excellent safety record and that’s something we can all be proud of.” 

John White-Spunner said his company’s strong commitment to safety led him to hire Moyer, who holds a degree in environmental, health and safety management. "With Ross on board, our culture of safety has expanded as evidenced by the numerous awards we receive and the number of safe hours worked,” he said. "Ross is among the youngest professionals to be named Safety Director of the Year by the AGC Mobile Chapter in 2014.”

White­-Spunner Construction has a 35-­year history of meeting the highest workplace safety standards. Since 1981, the company has completed more than $2.4 billion in total construction value, building an average annual volume of $73 million in projects during the last five years. The company generated $61.4 million in total construction value in 2015.

"The old saying is 'It’s not personal, it’s just business,’” Moyer said. "We like to say safety is not just business, it is personal. It doesn’t matter how many safety awards you have earned if everyone isn’t able to go home at the end of the day.”
