2018 Thomas J. Reynolds Award Winners Announced

May 21 2018

KEY LARGO, FL – The Association of Union Constructors (TAUC) on May 16 announced the winners of the annual Thomas J. Reynolds Awards for Excellence in Construction Safety and Health during a special ceremony at the 2018 TAUC Leadership Conference at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida.

The awards were created in 1983 by TAUC’s predecessor organization, the National Erectors Association (NEA), to recognize and commend the exceptional efforts made by members to prevent the occurrence of serious injury – or worse – on the jobsite. Winners are recognized for achieving a zero DART (Days Away, Restricted or Transferred) rate in one of four categories. In 1988, the awards program was renamed to honor the late Thomas J. Reynolds, a long-serving NEA member. A U.S. Navy veteran, Reynolds spent more than forty years in the construction industry, starting out as a union ironworker, boilermaker and millwright. From 1955 to 1976 he held a variety of high-level safety positions at Bethlehem Steel, culminating in his appointment as Supervisor of Plant Protection and Safety at the company’s Burns Harbor, Indiana facility. He went on to serve as Corporate Manager of Safety for Morrison Construction Company for many years. In 1986, Mr. Reynolds was invited by Labor Secretary William Brock to join OSHA’s Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health, becoming the first NEA member to participate on this prestigious panel.

This year, 107 contractors received Thomas J. Reynolds Safety Awards. These winners amassed more than 103 million work hours with 155 DART Cases in 2017. The average DART Rate of these TAUC members was an astounding 0.300 for 2017, well under the BLS National Average of 1.9.
