Overaa Receives 2022 Construction Employers’ Association (CEA) Excellence in Safety Award

Overaa is proud to receive the Construction Employers’ Association (CEA) 2022 Excellence in Safety Award. This award recognizes contractors with exceptional TRIR, DART, and EMR rates, as well as exceptional training and IIPP programs.

The primary responsibility of Overaa’s safety team is to promote and ensure a safe work environment for all employees. This involves providing team members with necessary tools, training, and guidelines to prevent accidents, injuries and illnesses on the job and to empower every individual to recognize unsafe practices and enforce our safety policy and procedures.

In 2022, Overaa’s safety team offered comprehensive safety training modules on a variety of topics and visited job sites more than 931 times to conduct 100-point safety audits. They held their 4th Safety Boot Camp and created a superintendent-led Safety Council.

But the most important thing they did was inspire us to come to work ready to learn, to improve, and to look out for one another, so that at the end of the day, we could all go home to our families.

Huge shout out to Alok Meheshwari, Corporate Safety Director and Dibash Acharya, Safety Engineer (both pictured holding this year’s CEA award), our Safety Engineers Danielle Cobbs, Clay Flynn, and Ronnie Thomas, and our entire field team for all their efforts that made this award possible.
