About the Awards

Established in 1983, the Thomas J. Reynolds Awards for Excellence in Construction Safety and Health were named in honor of a long-serving member of TAUC's predecessor organization, the National Erectors Association (NEA).

A U.S. Navy veteran, Thomas J. Reynolds spent more than forty years in the construction industry, starting out as a union ironworker, boilermaker and millwright. From 1955 to 1976 he held a variety of high-level safety positions at Bethlehem Steel, culminating in his appointment as Supervisor of Plant Protection and Safety at the company's Burns Harbor, Indiana facility. He went on to serve as Corporate Manager of Safety for Morrison Construction Company for many years.

In 1980, Mr. Reynolds assisted in writing proposed construction safety standards for OSHA. In 1986, he was invited by Labor Secretary William Brock to join OSHA's Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health, becoming the first NEA member to participate on this prestigious panel. The appointment was a fitting capstone to a career dedicated to advancing worker safety.
