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.

Surveying AGC Members on OSHA's New Silica Standard for Construction

As you may already know, OSHA delayed enforcement of the Respirable Crystalline Silica Standard for Construction until September 23, 2017. In the meantime, silica continues to be a hot topic and we expect that many members still have questions.

AGC would like to take this opportunity to survey members to determine how equipped they are to comply with the standard, and identify resources and outreach opportunities to meet their needs in this area. The survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

Any feedback you can provide via this survey will give us a better picture of concerns and needs, and help us advocate on your behalf.

Thank you for your help!

If you have any questions, please contact Kevin Cannon at or (703) 837-5410.
