ANCHORAGE, AK –Alutiiq recently received four National Safety Council Awards for excellence in project safety on construction military projects in Hawaii, Texas and North Carolina.
The National Safety Council is the nation’s largest and oldest organization dedicated to saving lives by preventing injuries and deaths. Less than 2 percent of the Council’s 53,000 members received awards.
Alutiiq’s Hawaii MATOC received the National Safety Council Safety Leadership Award. To qualify for this award a company, unit and/or facility must have achieved a minimum of five consecutive “perfect record” years operating without incurring occupational injury or illness to an employee or subcontractor.
