Phoenix, United States (23 February 2012) "- AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a 2011 National Safety Excellence Award from Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc.

Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) is a national association with 74 chapters representing nearly 23,000 merit shop construction and construction-related firms with nearly two million employees. The ABC National Safety Excellence Awards recognize companies who strive to maintain outstanding safety programs, policies and procedures.

"ABC congratulates AMEC for its proven dedication to construction workplace safety," said ABC President and CEO Michael Bellaman. "It is a pleasure for the association to honor this company's high achievement with our National Safety Excellence Award." 

AMEC's safety performance is a critical factor of the company's success and an operation is not seen as successful unless it is delivered safely. AMEC's vision is to achieve sustainable world-class health and safety performance across our global operations. As part of that vision, it is paramount that every employee holds safety as a cultural value and believes every injury is preventable; employees work safely, protect the environment and lead the company to a sustainable future.

 "We are delighted to be honoured with this award for our enduring commitment to safety, said Tim Gelbar, President of AMEC's Power & Process Americas business. "Working safely yields better outcomes and clients have come to associate AMEC with safe delivery. As AMEC continuously strives to achieve world-class safety performance, we must not lose sight of our vision on safety, nor should we forget to practice safety in every moment. Nothing is so important that we cannot take the time to do so safely."
