|What is AGC Safety Team?
|AGC's Safety Team is a workplace-safety program created in 1990 by the
AGC Safety Committee and Safety Services department. Our program goal
is to promote safe work environments which meet and exceed industry
standards through regular jobsite audits and program consultation for
AGC Safety Team member companies.
|Safety Audits AGC's Safety Services staff performs annual
paperwork and jobsite
audits for Safety Team members to ensure that safety programs
comply with industry standards. Audits are required to qualify for
Safety Team status and are recognized by the Washington State Department
of Labor and Industries and OSHA. Safety Team membership is an
underwriting criteria for the AGC
Workers Compensation Group Retro Program which consistently ranks as a
top performer in refunds and services.
|Consultation and Resources AGC's Safety Services staff is
available to assist all AGC member companies in developing a program that meets Safety Team standards through consultation services and
health and safety training resources.
|Why become an AGC Safety Team member?
|AGC Safety Team benefits to member companies include:
|Focused Inspections AGC's Safety Team has been recognized by
Labor and Industries with a directive that allows compliance inspectors
to engage in a focused inspection for Safety Team members' jobsites. [(WRD)2.25 Focused Inspections in Construction]. A focused inspection reduces the amount of time that an inspector spends on your
jobsite and minimizes unnecessary disruption, especially in the review
of records and written programs.
|Industry Recognition AGC Safety Team membership demonstrates --
to the construction industry, regulatory agencies and the broader
community -- a company’s commitment to safe work environments and the
health of employees. Safety Team jobsite banners, vehicle decals and
hardhat stickers are available for member companies to display this
commitment to safety.
|Networking AGC Safety Team professionals meet regularly to
share knowledge and resources. Our annual Safety Team golf tournament
also gives members the opportunity to network with industry peers who share this same level of commitment to workplace safety.
