Kentucky Ag Connection - 08/10/2018

Labor Cabinet Deputy Secretary Mike Nemes visited Trace Creek Construction, Inc. and presented a Governor's Safety and Health Award. Trace Creek Construction was thrilled to be able to use their current multi-million project Central Elementary School, in Vanceburg as a backdrop to Thursday's presentation.

"On behalf of Governor Matt Bevin and the Labor Cabinet, I want to congratulate Trace Creek Construction on this remarkable achievement," Labor Secretary David A. Dickerson stated. "Promoting workplace safety across the Commonwealth is our number one priority, and the people and processes in place at Trace Creek Construction make it easy to showcase their success as an example for other businesses to follow."

Trace Creek Construction, Inc. performs construction-related services from its office in Lewis County, Kentucky. Trace Creek has been in business for 25 years. Trace Creek currently employees 21 and specializes in commercial, industrial, design-build and construction management.

"Safety is our first thought and priority," said Trace Creek Founder and CEO, Sam Howard. "If a construction project has a lost time injury accident prior to completion it is not a successful project. It takes all team members to have 100 percent commitment to safety for us to receive this recognition."

"I am very proud of our focus on safety," said David West, president of Trace Creek Construction, Inc. "We appreciate the Governor recognizing companies that put safety as a top priority."

The Kentucky Labor Cabinet presents the Governor's Safety and Health Award to highlight outstanding safety and health performance in Kentucky's workplaces. A business may qualify for the award if its employees achieve a required number of hours worked without experiencing a lost-time injury or illness. The required number of hours is dependent upon the number of employees.

According to a recent report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Kentucky employers reported the lowest incident rate for nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses in the state's history.
