After 60 Years, Safety Remains
Our Top Priority

For the past 60 years, safety has consistently ranked #1 on KBE’s priorities list. Our accredited safety and compliance programs give our clients peace of mind and are a point of pride for our organization. So it goes without saying that safety will remain in its number one spot for the next…well, let’s be honest, the next 60+ years.

Our corporate safety program sets us apart from the rest. KBE has earned Experience Modification Rates that are consistently better than the industry average of 1.0, as well as numerous industry accolades. We have been recognized as a certified Accredited Quality Contractor through the national Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) and, since 2002, have received:

Our sterling safety record has given KBE the opportunity to enter into five recently completed or ongoing strategic safety partnerships with the federal and regional Connecticut OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) agencies.

Through these invitation-only partnerships, OSHA has asked KBE to combine forces in setting a standard to improve construction safety throughout the country. The goal is to inspire other construction companies to voluntarily take steps to improve their own safety practices, instead of waiting for the government to get involved when a situation becomes too dangerous. Three of these partnerships ran concurrently on the 210,000 sf Peter J. Werth Residence Tower at University of Connecticut in Storrs, Conn., the new 183,000 sf Litchfield Judicial District Courthouse in Torrington, Conn., and the 372,000 sf Jewish Senior Services project in Bridgeport, Conn. A fourth partnership took place on the recently completed 291,000 sf Seabury Active Life Community in Bloomfield, Conn. In 2017, the fifth partnership was launched at the Consolidated Public Works project in Waterbury, Conn.
