ARLINGTON, TEXAS - April 10, 2008 - Dino Sideris, Safety Director for Bob Moore Construction, has been named QUOIN / AGC's Safety Director of the Year for 2008.

Judging for the Safety Director of the Year award was based on the candidates' demonstrated technical expertise and professional contributions to advance the safety profession, such as public/community services and involvement in codes and legislation.

As safety director, Dino Sideris has led Bob Moore Construction's safety program to an impressive record of zero lost time or recordable incidents in more than two and a half years. Under his leadership, in 2007 Bob Moore Construction was accepted as a member of the OSHA Local Partnership program, only the fifth general contractor in north / east Texas to earn this recognition.

Dino Sideris is an active member of QUOIN, the north and east Texas chapter of AGC. He is vice chairman of QUOIN's Safety Leadership Group and a member of QUOIN's Safety Forum. Sideris is also a member of the prestigious Texas Building Branch Safety Committee in Austin, Texas, working with state legislators to influence safety laws and standards at the state and federal level, and the Safety Board for the Tilt-up Concrete Association (TCA), where he supports construction safety initiatives on a national level.

"Dino goes well beyond the basic requirements of simply maintaining a safety program," said Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction for Bob Moore Construction. "He has created a strong, aggressive safety mindset at our jobsites, and has made safety a habit, the normal way of doing things, for our employees and hundreds of our subcontractors' workers. He's taken those efforts statewide as well with his tireless involvement with AGC and TCA. I'm proud to have Dino as part of our construction team and I'm pleased that QUOIN has recognized his accomplishments."

It has been a pleasure working with them up to now, and I look forward to continuing to support those efforts in the coming years."
