Who: Paul R. Becker, Construction Practice Leader for Willis North America and the
AGC will present more than two dozen awards to construction companies that excel in

one of the finalist judges, and will participate in a Q&A period following

“A quality risk management strategy and robust safety program can help distinguish a
construction company from its competitors – demonstrating that it is willing to go beyond
merely meeting industry standards,” said Paul Becker. “In addition, safety programs
serve to address critical insurance issues related to workers compensation and claims cost
containment. Willis is committed to the construction industry and is pleased to sponsor
the AGC’s Construction Safety Excellence Awards, a partnership that began 12 years ago,”
