The Birmingham Section started 2015 with a political reception at the Murray Building Co. jobsite at the old Merita Bread Bakery. More than 150 members were in attendance with city and state officials. Everyone enjoyed a tour of the site as well as barbecue from Joe McNabb and Hendrix Chevrolet.

Join Alabama AGC and CompTRUST AGC in Hosting Safety Stand Downs on Heat Illness & Fall Protection

Join Alabama AGC and CompTRUST AGC as we support OSHA's upcoming national safety awareness campaigns on Heat Illnesses and Fall Protection.

Heat illnesses will be a major work hazard to jobsite workers in the coming months while Falls are one of the leading causes of construction worksite fatalties.

We ask you and your company to host a safety meeting or tool box talk focusing on heat illness April 25-29, and another on Fall Protection May 2-6.  Conducting a successful talk can be done in minutes, and may ultimately save a life.

In addition, Alabama AGC will host with ABC Alabama a free OSHA Stand Down on Fall Protection at Safe Day 2016 on Thursday, May 5 from 1:15-3:30 p.m. at the Cahaba Grand Conference Center in Birmingham.  To register for the stand down and/or to participate in the other events of Safe Day, please complete and return the form as instructed.

Attached are forms and resources to host a toolbox talk on Heat Illness and Fall Protection.
