Empirehouse is proud to be recognized nationally as an industry leader in construction safety by FCA International for the third year in a row. This year we were a Top 3 Finisher in the annual CREST (Contractors Recognizing Excellence in Safety Training) Awards, distinguishing contractors for safety excellence. Empirehouse earned the right to lay claim as one of the safest architectural glass and metal contractors and an industry-recognized leader in construction safety. The Top 10 Finishers were celebrated during the FCA Awards Ceremony at the FCA International Leadership Council.

“The FCA CREST Awards were created to encourage and recognize contractors who have led an effective safety program throughout the year,” explained Anthony Darkangelo, CEO of FCA International. “CREST Award winners have proven that protecting their employees is a priority at their company, and that they are a leader in construction safety.”

The FCA CREST Awards were started in 2011 with a simple mission: encourage and recognize excellence in safety training. Awarded by FCA International (an international contractor association representing more than 7,000 signatory contractors in the construction industry), winners are objectively selected based on key safety metrics such as years the company has had a safety program, safety training, injury/illness rates, recordable incident rates, EMR trends, etc.
