Recognizing that a safe workplace is a productive workplace, the AGC NYS has developed safety services to educate Members and their employees on safe work practices and field conditions and to assist Members with any OSHA concerns they may have. This service not only enhances productivity, but helps reduce workers’ compensation and liability costs and contributes to OSHA compliance.
Jobsite Audits: A jobsite audit involves a walkthrough of the jobsite by both AGC NYS safety personnel and a contractor’s representative. The host contractor’s and his subcontractors’ activities will be covered during the audit. At the conclusion a report will be presented to the host contractor. At the conclusion of the walkthrough the contractor can gather the appropriate personnel on site to review the report and discuss the abatement of unsafe conditions.
Supervisory Training: Supervisory personnel require more in-depth training than most in the construction industry. AGC NYS can provide training on a wide range of topics designed to meet the contractor’s needs.
OSHA 10 and 30 Hour Construction Outreach Training Courses: OSHA 10 and 30 hour courses are conducted in-house and customized to meet the specific needs of a contractor. OSHA 10 and 30 Hour courses are billed at an hourly rate.
Consultations: Staff is always available to answer questions from Membes regarding OSHA requirements, and to assist Members in their efforts to address OSHA citations. We can also provide assistance in the investigation of accidents.
Safety Advisory Services: This program is designed for Members who do not employ a full-time safety employee but require oversight of their corporate safety program by a knowledgeable experienced professional. AGC NYS will arrange with Members to assist with the maintenance and monitoring of their corporate safety programs. The service is provided at an hourly rate. Activities include all those listed above and special requests or circumstances.
Jobsite Safety Handbook: Available in both English and Spanish, this pocket-size booklet was prepared to assist New York State’s construction industry in achieving an accident-free environment. The guidelines listed in the book are based on OSHA’s construction industry standards. Thousands of these books have been distributed to workers on jobsites across New York State.
