Posted by Steve Hester on Wednesday, May 27, 2015

The Finishing Contractors Association International is the largest community of finishing contractors in North America, representing more than 7,000 Contractors, and on May 8th they presented the honorees with its Contractors Recognizing Excellence in Safety Training Award. (CREST Award)

The FCA CREST Awards were created to encourage and recognize contractors who have led an effective safety program throughout the year. There are several categories companies are recognized in: Architectural Glass & Metal; Drywall Finishing; Flooring; Industrial Coating; and Painting & Wallcovering.

Hester Painting & Decorating was a “Top 10 Finisher” in the Painting & Wallcovering category. The award criteria included the age of our company’s safety program, new-employee and ongoing safety training, injury/illness rates, recordable incident rates and experience modification rate (EMR) trends.

Since Hester Painting & Decorating opened back in 1968, pride has been taken in their effort towards obtaining a 100% safe work place from out in the field all the way back to the office. Whether it is driving to and from a job, walking a project and working on the project, Hester has sacrificed the time to try to be prepared for any scenario.
