BEAR Construction

In October of 2018, Assurance recognized BEAR Construction as a MRMH Award recipient. BEAR Construction is a Chicagoland leader in general contracting and construction management. BEAR Construction worked with Assurance’s safety team to conduct site audits, OSHA trainings and implement aggressive risk management strategies for their project, The Old Chicago Post Office. In partnership with Assurance’s safety team, BEAR has achieved outstanding safety results for this project, including site planning that prevented a potential $161,100 in OSHA penalties, training that avoided potential penalties of $990,00 and site audits preventing potential OSHA penalties of more than $2M.

This was a very unique project for BEAR Construction and for the construction industry in general. Safety as a concept sounds great, but Assurance on this job put together a report for us that actually quantified in real dollars what savings we’ve achieved through our safety program – $2M in potential penalties avoided through safety audits and almost $1M in other site fines.
