Moss & Associates Earns Second SHARP Renewal

Ranked among the nation's top 100 building contractors and the seventh largest in Florida, Moss & Associates provides construction management and design-build services throughout the United States, Bahamas and Caribbean. A core value for the Fort Lauderdale-based firm is safety and health, according to Brian Trusky, vice president of loss prevention. “Safety is vital to the future existence of the company,” he says.

While this is Moss' second SHARP renewal, the company doesn't rest when it comes to safety and continuously seeks ways to improve its safety policies and procedures. Over the past two years, their corporate safety committee, comprised of field and office personnel, worked collaboratively to revamp their health and safety manual. Trusky says this kind of employee involvement was paramount in creating and implementing the revised program company-wide. "(The safety manual) was created by the people who use it the most," he says.

Because safety and health is integral to Moss & Associates, Trusky says “maintaining SHARP status is a badge of honor we impress upon our employees, trade contractors, partners, developers and surrounding communities. We advertise and promote our SHARP status to the trade contractors we work with on projects … in an effort to encourage them to increase and improve their safety and health awareness within their own companies." Moss & Associates' DART rate of 0.42 is well below their industry average of 2.7.
