This Alliance will provide AGC members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers, particularly by reducing and preventing exposure to work place hazards in the construction industry. This will be accomplished by addressing fall, electrical, struck by, and caught in or between hazards, other safety issues, and understanding the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act).

This Alliance is very proactive in training their workers/members on safety and health. We meet monthly and I present to all attending members a 30 minute OSHA briefing on Fatalities, injuries and other events that have occurred in our area, region or nation monthly. The member companies have experienced safety managers and officers at the construction sites who attend the monthly briefings with OSHA.
Alliance will be renewed.
- OSHA 10 hour classes are scheduled to occur in March, May, June and August of 2017.
- Fall Stand Down Events are scheduled to occur at selected construction sites in May 2017.
