As a demonstration of AGC of America's leadership in construction safety and health, association staff delivered remarks at two events to help kick off Construction Safety Week and OSHA's National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction from May 2-6.
While addressing attendees at Aldridge Electric's Construction Safety Week kick-off event in Chicago, IL, AGC CEO Steve Sandherr Sandherr spoke about the association's efforts to promote safety week and its initiatives to address mental health and suicide prevention in the construction industry. He also highlighted AGC's Culture of Care program, aligning perfectly with this year's safety week theme - "CONNECTED. SUPPORTED. SAFE."
At OSHA's Falls Prevention Stand-Down event hosted by Clark Construction in Washington, D.C., AGC Senior Director of Safety & Health Services Kevin Cannon talked about AGC's ongoing efforts to educate the industry on fall prevention through the DOL/OSHA Susan Harwood Training Grant program. He also highlighted the association's partnership with Autodesk, which distributed $75,000 worth of fall protection equipment in 2020 and 2021. Joining him at this event were Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Doug Parker and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Jim Frederick.
