GBRIA’s Top Contractor Award
At the Greater Baton Rouge Industry Alliance (GBRIA) awards banquet held in March 2017, PSC received a first-place Contractor Safety Excellence Award in the Technical Support Division II category. That recognition alone was worth celebrating, but the icing on the cake came later in the evening with the surprise announcement that PSC had been selected as the winner of the Hal G. Ginn Award for 2016. This prestigious award is presented annually to the top performing contractor from all the companies nominated for Contractor Safety Excellence Awards.

Signal Safety Leadership Award

An association member since 1986, PSC was one of only 14 association members to receive the award for safety performance, among other criteria, during the past membership period.
