Safety Program Evaluation Results in Preferred Contractor Status

Company News
certified preferred contractor

We are thrilled to announce that Tonn and Blank Construction has recently earned CCS-IDOL Certified Partner status by the Coalition for Construction Safety (CCS). This is CCS’s highest ranking and is recognized by the Indiana Department of Labor and IOSHA.

A non-profit dedicated to the elimination of jobsite injuries and illnesses, CCS’s ultimate objective is to return workers home to their families, friends, and communities free from harm. Sound familiar? Since our inception, we’ve been steadfast in our adherence to safety protocols, quick to adopt proven advances in worksite protection and other safety measures.

To be recognized for this prestigious status, firms must pass an extensive company safety audit, and meet at least 50% of CCS’s best practices—Tonn and Blank Construction met 86% of their best practices – placing us within the top 25% of contractors within the program!

This is far more than an accolade to add to our already long list of certifications and awards; becoming CCS certified proves we embody our Safety Beyond Compliance mantra every day. CCS-IDOL Certified Partner status is a must as firms at this level use CCS as a vetting agency when reviewing proposals and awarding projects. Furthermore, strong safety culture is indicative of overall company professionalism, ethics, and values – giving us a competitive advantage over other contractors in the bidding process.

Most importantly, this certification is a reflection of the value we place on ensuring the safety and wellbeing of every employee in and around our jobsites and offices. Our employees are our number one concern and ultimately the reason we have earned this certification. Thank you to our team and congratulations.

To celebrate, we held appreciation lunches for all Tonn and Blank employees for their ongoing dedication to safety at the workplace at our various project sites.

Safety Beyond Compliance is uppermost in decision making and day-to-day operations of Tonn and Blank Construction. We are excited to continue our growth and recognition as being the best contractor we can be!
