Safety Awards

National AGC Safety Awards (NASA)

The National AGC Safety Awards program has been an ongoing effort since 191 to offer 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.

2023 NASA Application

How to Enter: A chapter must submit an application on behalf of the AGC CT member company. Applications are due to Brie Campbell no later than February 10, 2023. NASA Certificates will be presented at the October 12, 2023 AGC of CT Industry Recognition Awards Dinner.
