ConstructSecure Recognizes Network Installation Specialists (NIS), a NextEdge company, as one of its Safest Contractors & Vendors

Lexington, MA : ConstructSecure, Inc., a cloud-based mobile platform that empowers clients to make smarter risk management decisions, has announced the recipients of its prestigious safety awards. Network Installation Specialists LLC (NIS), a NextEdge company, has received the Gold Safety Award. This award is presented to companies who register a safety score between 85% – 95% in the Safety Assessment Program administered by ConstructSecure.

NIS has done a remarkable job of implementing a strong safety management system. In addition to keeping employees safe, safety performance of this caliber should reduce their insurance premiums,” says Garrett Burke, CEO of ConstructSecure.

“The safety of our crew members every day is one of our most important objectives.  We want to bring all of our people home to their families every night, so this award is very meaningful to our organization.”: Josh Cavaretta, President, NIS, a NextEdge Company.

The Safety Assessment Program reviews a company’s historic safety performance and current safety management systems. The platform normalizes data for vendor or contractor size and type of work performed.

The program provides thorough, objective and consistent evaluation of company performance so clients can identify, monitor, and manage risk smarter. The results provide a strong indicator of how a vendor or contractor values safety and a reliable predictor of future performance.
