Accent Construction Services, a subsidiary of EMJ Corporation, has received the Sunshine State Safety Recognition Award for its work on a 7-Eleven in Orlando. This award, given by the University of South Florida’s (USF) Safety Consultation Program, was developed to motivate and support employers who emphasize safety through the implementation and maintenance of effective injury and illness-prevention programs.
The construction of the 7-Eleven consists of a 3,000 square-foot building, two 20,000-gallon belowground fuel storage tanks and an overhead canopy—all on one acre. After an inspection by Pat Stark, USF Safety and Health Consultant, the team was recommended for the award.
“Safety is always a priority at Accent, and we appreciate when external resources acknowledge our team’s commitment to a safe and efficient workplace,” said Chas Torrence, Vice President of Accent.
Congratulations to the team on this project—Ray Alamo, Superintendent; Hannah Holcomb, Project Engineer; and Jared Erwin, Project Manager.
This is the second time this year that a member of the EMJ family of companies has received the Sunshine State Safety Award for their impeccable management of a safe workplace for field staff. In April, EMJ Hospitality was recognized for the Spring Hill Suites and Residence Inn in Clearwater, Fla.
