ARLINGTON, TEXAS - November 21, 2005 - Dino Sideris, Safety Director for Bob Moore Construction, has been chosen to join the prestigious Texas Building Branch Safety Committee in Austin, Texas.

The Texas Building Branch Safety Committee is a working group of safety directors from the top general contractors in Texas, intended to influence safety laws and standards at the state and federal level. The committee develops and provides input on compliance standards and safety-related legislation on behalf of the state of Texas. The state then incorporates the committee's recommendations into their own legislative actives and coordinates the findings with OSHA in Washington DC.

"It's a true privilege to be invited to serve in an organization like the Texas Building Branch Safety Committee," said Sideris. "The group is comprised of safety directors who actively pursue quality safety programs every day. These are the men and women who work constantly with existing laws and standards, who know what works and what doesn't, and who have an excellent perspective on what changes would make our jobsites safer and more productive. I'm very excited to have the opportunity to participate in this committee and help to make our laws smarter and more effective."

Sideris was appointed to the Texas Building Branch Safety Committee by the leadership of QUOIN, the North / East Texas Chapter of the Association of General Contractors (AGC). AGC is the oldest and largest trade association in the construction industry. Dino Sideris presently serves on QUOIN's Safety Forum and supports the organization's Safety Leadership Committee through the development of mock emergency drills.

"Dino is recognized as a leader in the Dallas / Fort Worth construction safety community," said Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction for Bob Moore Construction. "His outstanding efforts with our safety program played a major role in our being named AGC General Contractor of the Year this year. Through his involvement with QUOIN, Dino raises the level of safety knowledge, awareness and compliance at all construction sites all around the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex, and not just our own. Now, Dino's passion for safety will add a great deal of value to the Texas Building Branch Safety Committee. We're very pleased that his expertise and leadership will help to shape future standards and laws at both the state and federal levels."
