Trico Lift wins ABC construction safety award.

Trico Lift has received the American Builders and Contractors Chesapeake Shores Chapter Safety Award for what the Chapter calls "meritorious safety performance." The award was presented to Trico Lift, an aerial work platform company, at the ABC's Excellence in Construction Awards Banquet in September for achieving the highest amount of man hours without a lost time or recordable incident.

Associated Builders and Contractors is a national construction association representing more than 23,000 construction and construction-related firms in more than 79 chapters across the United States.

"Our vision is to be the best aerial work platform provider in the industry and we know that to be the best, we must remain diligent about risk awareness and assessment," Company President and CEO Ken Pustizzi explained. "We have five goals that we believe will help us achieve our vision and, of course, Safety is goal #1."
