Being a leader in construction safety...is an ongoing journey that demands a company culture unwaveringly committed to sending every worker home safely every day.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 06, 2015
Turner Construction Company is pleased to announce that the Women Builders Council recognized Cindy DePrater, vice president of Environmental Health and Safety, with their Innovative Safety Award.
Formally presented at the council’s Annual Champion Awards Dinner, the award recognizes Ms. DePrater for the many accomplishments of her 37-year career, including her significant contributions to the field of construction safety at Turner as well as in the broader industry through her work with OSHA’s Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health and other local and national organizations.
“Being a leader in construction safety takes more than programs, procedures, metrics, and initiatives,” said Ms. DePrater, adding, “It is an ongoing journey that demands a company culture unwaveringly committed to sending every worker home safely every day.”
The Council also recognized five additional Turner women – Kahli Baker, project manager; Rosemary Espinal, superintendent; Wanda Lee, logistics estimator; Kim Neuscheler, project executive; and Terriann Nohilly, senior cost engineer – as Outstanding Women in the Building Industry.
