he Gould Construction Institute (GCI) recently held its seventh annual Safety and Education Night at the Montvale Plaza in Stoneham where they announced the 2011 Safety, Training Evaluation Process (S.T.E.P.) winners, as well as the Craft Champion for 2011. This event highlights the tremendous work that GCI and ABC companies do to maintain a healthy and safe work environment for their employees. “We offer the first-rate safety training and are proud to celebrate their accomplishments with our companies that enroll in GCI,” stated Barbara Lagregen, GCI President. This year marked the first Diamond S.T.E.P. award winner, J.M. Coull. The Diamond award is the highest honor awarded when it comes to safety. Companies with long-term records of exceptional safety performance, with EMRs at or below .700 (.800 for companies with less than 100 employees) and average incidence rates at least 50 percent below construction industry averages. Additionally, the George W. Gould Memorial Scholarship gave out its final installment of funding to students. Three students received $19,000 checks for the upcoming school year to assist them with tuition. It was a bittersweet moment as Bob Mabardy addressed the crowd for the last time representing the Gould Scholarship Fund.
