We are honored to announce that Tolunay-Wong Engineers, Inc. won “Best in Class” and “New Comer of the Year” at the Houston Business Roundtable and Houston Area Safety Council 2016 29th Annual Safety Excellence Awards! As a first time nominee, nominated by both Marathon Galveston Bay Refinery and Valero Texas City, TWE was selected out of 78 contractors. TWE would like to recognize the outstanding work of our dedicated employees and continued safe work practices. See below for the Houston Business Roundtable (HBR) event results.
For the past twenty-nine years the Houston Business Roundtable has been recognizing Greater Houston Area contractors for outstanding safety performance. This award process over the years has brought many of the chemical, refining and energy companies on the Gulf Coast together in a cooperative effort with the contractors that provide construction and maintenance services to improve on-site safety, reduce accidents, and most importantly, reduce injuries to personnel. HBR believes that the Greater Houston Area contractors involved in this award process have developed world class safety programs and have produced significantly better safety records than any other group of contractors in the world.
Over 1500 industry representatives from both owners and contractor companies attended the safety awards banquet, hosted by HBR and HASC. 78 nominated contractor companies were recognized for their exemplary safety performance and these companies have been proven to be the models of safety excellence in the industry. Fourteen companies in the award competition were chosen as this year’s Best in Class in each of fourteen separate categories.
