Safety Week is a chance to remind everyone of the enormous responsibility we take every day to be safe.
Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 350 of the 937 construction fatalities recorded in 2015 (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable. The National Fall Prevention Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries.
Our annual chapter-wide convention will be June 15th-18th at the Hilton Sandestin. Join us for beach fun, golf, a silent auction benefitting the AGC Foundation Scholarship Fund and great learning and networking opportunities!
