WOLCOTT, Colorado – The Safety Award Winner of the 2011 American Subcontractors Association of Colorado Excellence in Safety Awards for over 500,000 man hours was presented to The Gallegos Corporation.

The ASAC held its annual Excellence In Safety Awards Program at Lakewood Country Club on March 24.

The annual event recognizes those companies who have made safety a part of their corporate culture.

“All applicants exemplify the highest standards of safety performance. Each year, it becomes increasingly difficult as applications are reviewed and judged, this year was no exception,” said Scott Deering, ASAC president.

“The Gallegos Corporation is a company where safety extends beyond the company with consideration given to not only employees, but to the community as well,” the ASAC said. “Because of their demonstrated safety performance, this company sets a good example and provides a positive image for construction.”

“Safety programs and safety performance are successful because we learn from one another,” said Debra Miller, ASAC executive director. “We talk about what other companies are doing to not only manage safety concerns as they arise, but how to be proactive in meeting the safety issues of the construction industry.”
