Thompson Engineering has been named an Eagle Award winner for Safety by the Associated Builders and Contractors of Alabama. The award recognizes companies that have outstanding corporate safety and health plans and exhibit superior safety initiatives. The Eagle Award is considered the state’s top safety award.
