AGC Georgia Safety Services

Promoting a safe and healthy work environment is of critical importance in the commercial construction industry, due to the nature of the work performed by contractors. The owners and customers, for whom commercial contractors work, both want and need assurances the companies they hire to build projects will take the necessary precautions and preventative safety measures.  The cost of unsafe practices and a tolerance for “near misses” can often take a toll on human life, as well as negatively impact worker morale and productivity, a company’s image and reputation in the marketplace, employee and customer satisfaction levels, and the dollars expended for insurance premiums and claims.

AGC’s safety services revolve around helping member firms stay proactive in their safety efforts to ensure the safest jobsites which contribute significantly to overall project success.
