Vos Glass Recognized by ABC for Safety, Honors in Glazing
November 3, 2010

The National Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. (ABC) Safety Committee has awarded Vos Glass Inc. in Grand Rapids, Mich., with a safety training and evaluation process (STEP) Platinum Level Achievement Award for the fourth consecutive year.

The STEP programs' purpose is threefold: to analyze and further develop member's safety programs; to provide a valid method of measuring safety program improvements; and to provide a company with recognition for their commitment to produce a safe place to work.

"The Platinum Award is the highest level award and can only be awarded to companies that have earned previous cold or platinum certification," says John Doherty, president and chief executive officer of the Western Michigan chapter of ABC.

"Being committee to safety is an ongoing process and the biggest reward is a safer workplace," says Linda Vos-Graham, president of Vos Glass Inc.

ABC also recognized the company with two 2010 Awards of Excellence honors in glazing for two projects:

  • Holland Hospital Renovations in Holland, Mich., in the category glazing under $2 million and
  • Van Andel Institute - Phase II in Grand Rapids, Mich., in the category glazing over $2 million.
