The Greenville-based homebuilder won a first-place Safety Award for Excellence from the National Association of Home Builders and Builders Mutual Insurance Company. Presented in the Single Family Builder Safety Program of the Year category, this top honor recognizes Addison Homes for its comprehensive efforts designed to ensure an accident-free work environment for employees, trade partners and vendors.

Addison Homes advances safety in the homebuilding industry in a number of ways. The company has established clearly-defined procedures for its office as well as worksites and provides ongoing safety training for all employees. An on-site supervisor monitors compliance of both company and OSHA guidelines at every jobsite. A commitment to research keeps Addison Homes current on the latest developments related to construction safety.

“We strive, every day and on every job, to maintain a safe, healthy work environment,” says Todd Usher, president of Addison Homes. “Our company invests significant resources to provide for the well-being of our employees, partners and clients.”

Usher notes there’s never been an incidence of “serious” physical injury on an Addison worksite. “This record is a testament to the success of our company’s safety program,” he says.

The NAHB/Builders Mutual Insurance Company SAFE Awards are presented annually to builders and trade contractors whose high-quality safety programs make them leaders in the residential construction industry.
