East Hartford, CT – United Steel, Inc. received two prestigious awards for safety and community service from the trade group Connecticut Construction Industries Association (CCIA). The awards were presented during CCIA’s annual membership meeting and holiday reception held at the Aqua Turf in Southington, Conn.

CCIA’s safety committee selected United Steel for its Platinum Level Safety Award for the Specialty Contractors Category in recognition of its proven commitment to worker safety, which meets or exceeds national safety statistics. To be considered for this award, United Steel submitted an extensive evaluation of its ongoing safety education and impressive safety record to the CCIA.

United Steel received the CCIA’s 2015 Community Service for its work with the Kidnetic Clubhouse Children’s Museum in Shelton, Conn. United Steel donated materials and services to create a new mobile display frame for the museum’s kid-sized F4U Corsair WWII fighter plane. This plane, which was featured in the hit 2013 Disney movie Planes, is considered to be one of Connecticut’s greatest engineering marvels and an inspiration to future engineers.
