Fluor Corporation (NYSE:FLR) announced today that its 95 Express Lanes project yesterday received the American Road & Transportation Builders Association’s (ARTBA) Transportation Development Foundation 2014 Contractor Safety Award. The award was presented to the Fluor-Lane 95 team during ARTBA’s National Convention in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

The Fluor-Lane 95 team currently has more than 3.2 million safe work-hours without a lost time incident and an Occupational Safety and Health Administration recordable rate of 0.43, well below the industry national average of 3.6.

“I am very proud of the Fluor-Lane 95 health, safety and environmental program,” said Walter Lewis, III, project director. “Safety is at the forefront of every project Fluor undertakes and having ARTBA independently recognize that is extremely gratifying for all the members of our Fluor-Lane project team,” said Lewis.

This specific achievement honors industry firms that have implemented outstanding employee health and safety programs with more than 1 million safe work-hours. The Fluor-Lane 95 team was judged on seven criteria including management commitment, employee participation, incident investigation, audit procedures, safety planning, management implementation and risk assessment.

During the ARTBA National Convention, the Fluor-Lane 95 team also accepted an Outreach Campaign award for its “Orange Cones. No Phones” driver awareness program that has been implemented on the project. This award recognizes efforts that promote roadway work zone safety through implementation of employee and/or public education campaigns on a national, state or local level.

The 95 Express Lanes project is located in northern Virginia and is on schedule for substantial completion in December 2014 with lanes opening to traffic in early 2015.
