Nickle Electrical Companies received two safety awards from local contractors associations for exemplary performance over the past year.
On March 12, Nickle was selected as one of the recipients of the 2014 Governor’s Safety Awards for the fourth year in a row. The honor was co-sponsored by the Delaware Contractors Association and the Delaware Department of Labor.
The award is given to contractors that “bring distinction, skill, and integrity to the construction industry.”
On May 7, Nickle was presented with its ninth consecutive Associated Builders and Contractors of Delaware STEP Award for safety. The STEP (Safety Training and Evaluation Process) program is designed to support ABC members with development and improvement of safety and training efforts. The awards are given in five levels based on a company’s safety program and this was the second year Nickle received the top award at the Diamond level.
