DBM Contractors, headquartered in Federal Way, Wash., received two safety awards from the International Association of Foundation Drilling (ADSC).

DBM, which focuses in specialty geotechnical construction and design/build heavy civil construction, was one of four contractors to receive the award in the United States for contractors who perform single projects in excess of $750,000. The company was also one of only two contractors to receive the Rick Marshall Commitment to Excellence in Safety Award.

The Rick Marshall Commitment to Excellence in Safety Award is given to ADSC members who commit to providing a safe workplace of superior quality and demonstrate a comprehensive and consistent safety program throughout the entire company culture. The award was named in recognition of the special contribution made by ADSC Safety Committee chairman, and in-house volunteer safety consultant, Rick Marshall. ADSC awards are presented to recognize outstanding achievement in combined field and shop safety efforts of ADSC contractor and associate member companies.

“At DBM we are more than dedicated to safety, safety is an integral part of our company culture,” said Tom Armour, DBM president and CEO.

The company’s EMR rating has dropped 30 percent since 2009 and is currently .679. According to DBM, the company has not had a time loss accident in more than 450,000 man-hours worked.
