WELLESLEY, MA–Twenty local construction firms have been named winners of the 2022 National Associated General Contractors of America Safety Awards, a major accomplishment in a year which saw the lowest average accident incidence rate in history.

The Associated General Contractors of Massachusetts (AGC MA) submitted applications from their member companies, 18 of which had no injuries reported onsite. In addition, firms with incidence rates less than half the national average will receive the AGC MA Safety Merit Award.

“Year after year AGC MA members are recognized for safety excellence,” says AGC MA Director of Safety Services Chris Ziegler. “It’s a testament to the collaborative culture among our area safety professionals and that our company leaders put working safely above all else.”

Local awardees will be recognized at the annual AGC MA Safety Awards Luncheon at the Westin Copley Place on Friday, June 16th. Visit to learn more.
