EL PASO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This week, EHS Today honored Jordan Foster Construction (Jordan Foster), a leading general contractor in the State of Texas, as one of the 2023 America’s Safest Companies. Leadership from Jordan Foster’s Risk Management team attended the 2023 Safety Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida where the company was recognized for its achievements at the America's Safest Companies Award Ceremony on September 19, 2023.
EHS Today is owned and produced by Endeavor Business Media, one of the largest B2B Media companies in the United States. For more than 20 years, the America’s Safest Companies competition has sought to identify characteristics that differentiate good safety programs from great ones, and to then celebrate the best practices and procedures that exemplify safety excellence.
“I could not be more proud of Jordan Foster for earning this award. Being named in the top 10 of America’s Safest Companies by EHS Today is a true testament to the safety systems we commit to in all of our projects in every market we serve.

Everything we do, we do to the best of our ability, and we do so with unmatched safety processes,” said Tricia Kagerer, Executive Vice President of Risk Management at Jordan Foster.
To be considered as one of America’s Safest Companies, organizations must complete an application that requires them to demonstrate excellence in several areas: support from leadership and management for EHS efforts; employee involvement in the EHS process; innovative solutions to safety challenges; injury and illness rates lower than the average for their industries; comprehensive training programs; evidence that prevention of incidents is the cornerstone of the safety process; good communication about the value of safety; and a way to substantiate the benefits of the safety process.
“Every America’s Safest Company winner is a standard-bearer of safety excellence. Each winning company has engrained into their culture and their employees a consistent and constant need to keep every person and every situation free from harm,” said EHS Today Editor-in-Chief Dave Blanchard.
Jordan Foster is joined by nine other Class of 2023 America’s Safest Companies. They are ACCO Brands, Cajun Industries, Loven Contracting, MasterBrand Cabinets, Performance Contractors, Plastipak Packaging, Price Electric, S&B Engineers & Constructors, and Yaskawa Electric America.
