The NASA Application in now available!
The National AGC Safety Awards (NASA) program has been an ongoing effort since 1991 to offer AGC members an opportunity to evaluate their safety record. NASA compares an AGC member’s safety record with other AGC members according to the member size and construction type. Additionally, NASA provides a great opportunity for contractor members who have excellent safety records to compete for nationally recognized awards.
AGC members must have participated in the National AGC Safety Awards Program for three consecutive years in order to be eligible for an award. This means a member must have participated in the program for the years 2014, 2015 and 2016 in order to be eligible to receive an award in 2017.
If you have never competed in this awards program, please contact us to get started.
AGC members with direct-hire, job-site craft labor are eligible to compete in ONE of the following categories:
- Federal & Heavy
- Utility Infrastructure
- Associate / Specialty
The AGC of California Chapter must submit an entry on behalf of the AGC member company. To participate in the program, please use the NASA Application Form on PAGE 5 to provide the required information and send an electronic copy to Ryan Samiec.
The deadline for application submission is: February 6, 2017.
(Only electronic NASA participant forms will be used to collect information necessary to participants in the awards program)
NASA has two
award categories: Chapter Safety Awards and AGC Member Awards.
Chapter Safety Awards
The AGC Chapter Safety Awards are based on a weighted average of participation and the overall incident rate of the Chapter’s general contractor members. Each Chapter is divided into four size categories:
- Less than 50 general contractor members;
- 50-100 general contractor members;
- 101-200 general contractor members; and
- Over 200 general contractor members.
The first place winners for each division will receive plaques and the second and third place winners will receive Certificates of Excellence.
AGC Member Awards
Safety awards are given to members who have a zero incident rate or who have an incident rate 25 per cent below each occupational division’s average (AGC divisions include: Building, Highway, Federal and Heavy, Utility Infrastructure and Associate/Specialty.)
- AGC provides awards to members who have participated in the awards program for three consecutive years and have an incident rate below 25 per cent of their division rate - Certificate of Commendation.
- AGC provides awards to members who have participated in the awards program for three consecutive years and have a zero incident rate – Certificate of Commendation.
AGC of California will notify winners and present all member awards at Chapter Events.
