ANCHORAGE— Cornerstone General Contractors has been awarded the 2018 Governor’s Safety Award of Excellence, for the seventh consecutive year, at the 38th Annual Governor’s Safety and Health Conference.
The Governor’s Safety Award of Excellence is presented to organizations demonstrating distinction in protecting the safety and health of their personnel, the environment, company assets, and reputation. The Award also recognizes companies that demonstrate and promote superior corporate citizenship.
Cornerstone has maintained a sterling safety record with no recordable injuries or incidents since August 2013. Over the past three years, Cornerstone has constructed a number of community driven projects throughout the State of Alaska while maintaining the lowest Experience Modification Rate possible in its man-hour category. These projects include the Mt. Edgecumbe High School Aquatics Center in Sitka, the West High School-Romig Middle School IMC Renovation and Addition in Anchorage, and the Alaska Airlines Terminal in Kotzebue.
In 2014, Cornerstone began to expand its existing safety program, starting with participation in the Alaska Occupational Safety and Health (AKOSH) Construction Health and Safety Excellence (CHASE) Blue program. By 2018, after significant effort and development in its Safety Program, Cornerstone was accepted into the CHASE Gold partnership. Cornerstone has expanded that commitment in 2019 by also participating in the OSHA Federal Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).

The Corporate 100
Alaska Business has been celebrating the corporations that have a significant impact on Alaska’s economy since 1993. At the time, the corporations weren’t ranked as the list didn’t have specific ranking criteria. Instead, the Alaska Business editorial team held long, detailed, and occasionally passionate discussions about which organizations around the state were providing jobs, owned or leased property, used local vendors, demonstrated a high level of community engagement, and in general enriched Alaska.
