is sent out to members of the ASACP and to professional businesses associated
with the building trade. Current distribution is 325 member companies, General
Contractors, Construction Managers and architects. Each issue includes a one
page safety segment and over the course of the year discuss a wide range of
topics from accident prevention to crane safety. These newsletters are available
on the ASACP website. ASACP also sends each of the members an email message called, "Blueprint Weekly" to review current issues, including safety.
The fourth year of the Alliance was primarily devoted to conducting monthly
training sessions, giving OSHA updates and answering questions raised by members
during the American Subcontractor Association's 2007 and 2008 monthly meetings.
Similar activities will occur during the next year of the Alliance, however, we
will continue provide training more in line with the types of injuries being
experienced within this chapters trades. Our efforts will continued be geared
toward establishing relationships with inactive members and improving
relationships with active members.
