A big welcome to new Puget Sound Chapter members:
Construction workers make up approximately five percent of the country’s workforce but account for an average of 19% of all job-related fatalities each year. In addition, falls account for the greatest number of fatalities in the construction industry, especially among small businesses. Over the past 10 years, at least, an average of 346 workers were killed from falls, and nonfatal injuries and illnesses that resulted from falls occurred at a rate of 31.4 per 10,000 full-time workers in 2020. AGC of America is pleased to offer this NO-COST one-day training program based on OSHA standards and best practices to answer the need for quality training within the industry.
