ST. LOUIS (October 2, 2020) – Aegion Corporation (NASDAQ:AEGN) today announced that its subsidiary, Aegion Coating Services, has received the Platinum Safety Award from ConstructSecure, Inc., a cloud-based mobile platform that empowers clients to make smarter risk management decisions. The award is presented to companies that register a safety score of 95% or greater in the Safety Assessment Program administered by ConstructSecure.

“Platinum status is not easily achieved, and Aegion Coating Services has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to implementing safety management systems resulting in exceptionally low incident rates,” states Garrett Burke, CEO of ConstructSecure.

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.

“Aegion and Aegion Coating Services have always held the safety and wellbeing of our employees, customers and communities in the highest regard,” said Todd Brabson, Vice President, Safety for Aegion. “We are honored to be recognized for our commitment to safety by ConstructSecure, and we are proud of the dedicated employees whose diligence made this award possible.”
