“Dino goes well beyond the basic requirements of simply maintaining a safety program,” said Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction for Bob Moore Construction. “He has created a strong, aggressive safety mindset at our jobsites, and has made safety a habit, the normal way of doing things, for our employees and hundreds of our subcontractors’ workers. He’s taken those efforts statewide as well with his tireless involvement with AGC and TCA. I’m proud to have Dino as part of our construction team and I’m pleased that QUOIN has recognized his accomplishments.”
“I’m very grateful to have been selected for this honor,” said Dino. “I’ve enjoyed a great deal of support from everyone at Bob Moore Construction. The executive team and project management have always been supportive of the program, and we have some great superintendents who keep the program going every day on the jobsites. I also appreciate the opportunities I’ve had to work with the professionals at QUOIN, who do a tremendous job of improving safety in the Texas construction community. It has been a pleasure working with them up to now, and I look forward to continuing to support those efforts in the coming years.”
The award was presented at QUOIN’s Oscar Night on April 8, 2008 at the Gaylord Texan Hotel in Grapevine, Texas.
