In recognition of our high standards of safety in the demolition industry, Midwest Steel is proud to announce that we were recently awarded the prestigious Michael J. Casbon Safety Award. The award is given in honor of the late Michael J. Casbon’s legacy of 25 years of service in the construction, demolition, and decontamination industries.

The Michael J. Casbon Safety Award was created by the National Demolition Association (NDA) Awards Committee together with the NDA Safety Committee. Its goal is to honor companies in the demolition and construction industry that have shown the highest standards of safety and excellence in their work. NDA has always encouraged companies of all sizes to apply and participate in order to improve safety standards in the industry.

As an expert in construction, demolition, and decontamination for 25 years, Michael J. Casbon was also a member of the NDA Education Committee, Government Affairs Committee, and Safety Committee. He played a key role in the development of the education series for NDA’s Foundations of Demolition Management course. He also trained over 1,000 compliance officers on the principles of field inspection. Michael Casbon received the NDA Hall of Fame Award posthumously in 2019.
