Safety Awards

National AGC Safety Awards (NASA)

The National AGC Safety Awards program offers AGC members an opportunity to evaluate their safety records. Participating members receive a confidential printout to compare their company's safety statistics with similar size and type AGC members both locally and nationally.  The NASA provides a great opportunity for members with excellent safety records to compete for nationally recognized awards. Additionally, this information can be used to assist in determining if additional accident prevention and loss-control measures are necessary.
