Of the companies who entered, 20 earned the right to lay claim to the safest contractor in their respective categories, and 30 other companies finished as Top Finishers.

Awarded by FCA International (an international contractor association representing more than 7,000 signatory contractors in the construction industry), winners are objectively selected based on key safety metrics such as years the company has had a safety program, safety training, injury/illness rates, recordable incident rates, EMR trends, etc. Winners earn the right to say they are the safest contractor in their respective category.
