accidents and fatalities. In October 2011, T.H. Marsh Construction Co., Royal Oak, received the MIOSHA CET Gold Award in recognition of its outstanding safety and health record. The firm worked two years without a lost time accident. “We are honored to present this award to T.H. Marsh Construction, and we are pleased to recognize your exemplary record of protecting your workers in this high-hazard industry,” said Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) Deputy Director, Steve Arwood. “Your dedication sends the message to Michigan employers that focusing on safety upfront is a sound business decision.” Under the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code 236220 (Commercial and Institutional Building Construction), T.H. Marsh’s total case incidence rate (TCIR) was 0.0 in 2009 and 2010, compared to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Michigan rate of 3.6 in 2009 and 2.9 2010. (Based on a specific calculation, incidence rates represent the number of injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers.) T.H. Marsh’s total day’s away/restricted cases (DART) rate was 0.0 in 2009 and 2010, compared to the BLS Michigan rate of 1.7 in 2009 and 1.3 in 2010, according to a LARA news release and Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data. In safety, zero incidence rates and zero fatalities equal success. T.H. Marsh has been rewarded not only with an award but with lower insurance premiums, as well. “Some people might ask, ‘Why do I have to pay a safety person to drive around all day?’ ” said Dan Gadbois, T.H. Marsh safety director and a safety veteran of over 15 years. “Working safely has definitely produced cost savings, and it has affected our bottom line for the better.” As proof positive, T.H. Marsh also earned a berth on Inc. Magazine’s national 5000 Fastest Growing Companies list for 2011.

Dan Gadbois, T.H. Marsh safety director and a safety veteran of over 15 years, is deeply committed to teaching safe practices and implementing site-specific safety plans.
