Carr Builders, a General Contractor located in Pompano Beach, FL, has announced that it has the honor of receiving recognition from USF SafetyFlorida to commend them for the development, administration, and oversight of their exemplary Safety Practices for the Staybridge Suites Hotel construction project in Davie, Florida whereby Carr Builders was presented with the Sunshine State Safety Recognition Award on October 31, 2018.


The Sunshine State Safety Recognition Award is administered by USF SafetyFlorida, which is a service of the University of South Florida, College of Public Health. It is awarded to Florida’s employers and employees who proactively and routinely engage in job safety. In order to be considered for this award, a business must undergo a comprehensive evaluation of the work site which includes an assessment based on meeting or exceeding OSHA guidelines of the safety management programs that are in place, a review of its safety rules and training practices, analysis of its internal safety inspections routines, as well as conducting personal interviews with their workers. After a successful final consultation, the company is recommended to the program management to receive the award.


On their website, USF SafetyFlorida notes that the Florida employers earning the Sunshine State Safety Recognition Award represent a commitment to safety, saying, “It takes a team effort … to integrate safety as an ongoing practice.” According to USF SafetyFlorida, there are approximately only 40 businesses that earn this honor annually and “it is something your company will take great pride in.”
