Construction Company Upgrading Washburn Tunnel Facility Wins Major National Safety Council Awards for the Project


CDM Smith Constructors, Inc. (CCI), which constructed a disinfection system at GCA’s Washburn Tunnel Facility, has been awarded the Operational Excellence Achievement Award and the Perfect Record Award by the National Safety Council for the Authority project.

The Perfect Record Award recognizes individuals, companies, units and/or facilities that have completed a period of at least 12 consecutive months with- out incurring an occupational injury or illness that resulted in a fatality or days away from work.
The Occupational Excellence Achievement Award recognizes projects that have Lost Workday case incident rates better than or equal to 50% of the Bureau of Labor Statistics rating for GCA’s North American Industrial Classification System code in the past calendar year and zero fatalities during previous calendar year.

These are outstanding achievements that attest to the close cooperation and teamwork exhibited by CCI and GCA personnel during the recent Washburn Tunnel Facility construction project, which was con- ducted in very close proximity to GCA operations.
