Dean Steel Build­ings in Cedar­town re­ceives safety award

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - Staff re­ports

The Cedar­town fa­cil­ity for Dean Steel Build­ings was one of two in Ge­or­gia that was rec­og­nized for their safety record in re­cent days.

The plant was re­cently rec­og­nized with an in­dus­try Safety Award from the Metal Build­ing Man­u­fac­tur­ers As­so­ci­a­tion (MBMA). Each year MBMA rec­og­nizes Build­ing Sys­tems man­u­fac­tur­ers and As­so­ciate mem­bers that show ex­cep­tional com­mit­ment to as­sur­ing work­place safety.

Hon­ors also went to the com­pany’s Thoamsvill­e, Ge­or­gia plant.

Safety awards for 2018 per­for­mance were pre­sented at the MBMA Spring Meet­ing held May 1-3, 2019 in Myr­tle Beach, South Carolina.

“We are com­mit­ted to pro­mot­ing work­place safety and these awards rec­og­nize those fa­cil­i­ties that set an ex­am­ple for all of us,” says Jen­nifer Oblock, ac­count ex­ec­u­tive for MBMA. “For our Build­ing Sys­tems mem­bers in 2018, 42 plant fa­cil­i­ties par­tic­i­pated in MBMA’s Quar­terly OSHA In­jury Sta­tis­tics Pro­gram, log­ging nearly 12 mil­lion hours on the job. Our As­so­ciate mem­bers’ awards pro­gram ex­tends the fo­cus on safety across the in­dus­try to our sup­pli­ers’ man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties as well.”

From the 42 man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties na­tion­wide that submitted data, seven awards were pre­sented. MBMA’s Build­ing Sys­tems Award pro­gram has two tiers: the Su­pe­rior Safety Award, which is for com­pa­nies that achieved zero record­able in­ci­dents in the cal­en­dar year, and the Safety Per­for­mance Award, which is for plants with an in­ci­dent rate of 50% or less than the OSHAre­ported av­er­age for the North Amer­i­can In­dus­try Clas­si­fi­ca­tion Sys­tem (NAICS) Code 332311 (pre­fab­ri­cated metal build­ing and com­po­nent man­u­fac­tur­ing). Re­cip­i­ents of the Safety Per­for­mance Award achieved an in­ci­dent rate of 1.55 or lower.

The As­so­ciate Mem­ber Awards went to four com­pa­nies with fa­cil­i­ties that achieved zero record­able cases for 2018, which is a sig­nif­i­cant ac­com­plish­ment.

“We are very proud of our Ge­or­gia staff. Their con­tin­ued com­mit­ment to main­tain­ing a safe en­vi­ron­ment is sig­nif­i­cant and we are very happy for the na­tional recog­ni­tion they are re­ceiv­ing”, says Nan Dean, Pres­i­dent of Dean Steel Build­ings, Inc., from the Fort My­ers, FL cor­po­rate of­fice.

Dean Steel Build­ings has been in the Metal Build­ing con­tract­ing busi­ness for over 50 years. In 1972 they started fab­ri­cat­ing their own build­ings and are cur­rently mar­ket­ing sys­tem through­out the South­east­ern United States, the Caribbean, Cen­tral and South Amer­ica.

Four decades of “hand­son” ex­pe­ri­ence are in ev­ery com­po­nent and ev­ery sys­tem pro­duced. Tra­di­tional qual­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity, com­bined with de­sign flex­i­bil­ity and per­son­al­ized ser­vice is why Dean Steel Build­ings con­tin­ues to en­joy an out­stand­ing rep­u­ta­tion among ar­chi­tects and con­trac­tors. They have of­fices in Cedar­town, Thomasvill­e and Fort My­ers, Florida.

The Cedar­town and Thomasvill­e plants of Dean Steel Build­ings won safety awards.
