Providing safe working conditions and educating employees on safe working habits can help prevent accidents, save lives, help to avoid citations by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and lower your workers’ compensation costs. Austin AGC provides multiple services to help members improve safety on their jobsites.
We have a full-time safety director who helps members and who offers advice on OSHA compliance matters and other government agencies. Some services offered by our Safety Director include:
Review of your safety program; Company Safety Policy development (manual preparation)
Ensuring you have all documents required by various government agencies
Inspecting jobsites for potential OSHA violations and unsafe acts or conditions; OSHA inspection (accompany inspector); and OSHA conferences (attend with your representative)
Training programs for employees on OSHA standards
Updates on OSHA regulations & other legislative changes
Safety library: videos, posters & other display materials
Telephone consultation and safety meetings
GC member jobsite inspections that Associate members can benefit from — visual inspection of hazards
HAZCOM requirements; federal & state requirements; and verbal reports
Company drug program development (policy/procedure/implementation)
We would like AGC Austin members to participate in a stand down. We would like to show the city and county, we are taking the necessary steps to keep our workers safe. Please let Michael Welvaert know if you are planning on doing a stand down this week. We would also like some action photos of the stand down being conducted where we can post on social media to show the city and county we are taking the corrective measures to ensure worker safety.
