ARLINGTON, TEXAS - March 7, 2005 - Dino Sideris, Safety Director for Bob Moore Construction, has been invited to participate in two of Quoin’s top Safety-related working groups.

Quoin is the North / East Texas Chapter of the Association of General Contractors (AGC), the oldest and largest trade association in the construction industry. A major component of Quoin’s support to Texas general contractors is providing safety program education, to help general contractors protect their employees and subcontractors and comply with OSHA requirements.

QUOIN’s Safety Forum is a group of local AGC members who meet monthly to discuss and resolve common safety-related issues in a consistent manner. Sideris has been selected to join the forum. He will also present on how Bob Moore Construction implemented the new Design Build Objective Two (DBO2) program, a PDA-based system for managing and documenting jobsite safety inspections that was developed by QUOIN and AGC.

The Safety Leadership Committee is a select group of Quoin members who drive greater quality and awareness in safety throughout the local AGC community. Sideris was invited to support this committee's effort to develop a mock emergency drill for Safety Forum members to test their responses to a real-world situation.

“This is just a natural progression of what we’re doing at Bob Moore Construction,” said Dino Sideris. “Our superintendents have been certified in CPR, first aid and OSHA 30-Hour Awareness Training. We’ve implemented the DBO2 tracking system to ensure that an aggressive inspection schedule is followed and documented. Future enhancements may include improved communications via our website at . We’re using the latest technological advancements, rigorous training procedures, heightened awareness at all levels of the company and strict adherence to regulatory requirements to keep our jobsites as safe as possible for our employees and subcontractors. Quoin is working to drive that same focus and awareness in the rest of the Dallas / Fort Worth construction industry, so I’m very happy to support what they’re doing.”

Safety Director Dino Sideris provides 30-Hour OSHA Awareness Training for superintendents with general contractor Bob Moore Construction. The superintendents are also certified in CPR and first aid.“We’re pleased to see Dino’s expertise being recognized by Quoin,” said Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction for Bob Moore Construction. “Safety is an important part of our business. OSHA pays very close attention to our industry; 47% of their inspections each year take place at construction job sites. More and more we find that clients review our safety program as part of their process for choosing a general contractor; our longstanding focus on safety has become not just a moral imperative and legal requirement, but a strong selling point as well. Since joining Bob Moore Construction, Dino has taken our excellent safety program and made it an exemplary one, earning recognition from the St. Paul / Travelers Group insurance company as well as Quoin. We hope that Quoin and AGC can leverage Dino’s expertise to improve working conditions at jobsites all across North Texas, and not just at Bob Moore Construction projects.”
