Kraus-Anderson Construction Company (KA) has been awarded a Governor’s Safety Award in recognition of excellence in injury prevention performance.  The company said it has one of the best safety records in the construction industry – 26 consecutive years it has earned the company the Governor’s Safety Award.

“KA’s commitment to our people’s safety is reflected in the company’s exceptional record of receiving this award,” said Al Gerhardt, COO of Kraus-Anderson.  “No other recognition gives us more gratification.”

Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards have honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance.  Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with state and national statistics, and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program.
