The Association will work together on issues of mutual concern, including the issue of worker and public safety, along with workforce diversity, issues of paramount importance to all member contractors. The members of the Association highlight their commitment to workforce training from ongoing toolbox talks to on-site safety training at all jobsites.
The Association has formed an internal safety committee for member contractors to share best safety practices and ensure that all workers are held to a high standard of jobsite safety procedures.
According to Tom Nickel of T.G. Nickel & Associates, LLC, “The goal of this Association is to work toward taking the industry to an exceptional level. The group will continue to work hard to ensure its members are held to the highest standards of worksite practices to ensure all workers go home safe at the end of the day on every jobsite, with a motto of ‘every life matters.’”
