Improving Safety in the Construction Industry

by | Mar 5, 2021


The GLA team would like to give a very special shoutout to the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), who recently recognized industry professionals and companies through the Construction Safety Excellence Awards (CSEA).

The AGC’s criteria for awarding Safety Excellence is significantly more comprehensive than many other awards programs. This is because they take into account more than just frequency rates. Indeed, the level of innovation, commitment, training, and active participation that construction companies practice in safety and risk control are all considered in determining who receives the awards. Acknowledged as the premier safety award in the country, the prestige of the CSEA gives industry professionals the opportunity to compete with and learn from the best in the country. What better way to incentivize and recognize safety in construction than through this awards program?

Safety is the number one goal for every construction project now more than ever. Due to the conditions surrounding COVID-19, construction professionals and their organizations have had to reevaluate what their safety concerns are and accordingly prioritize risk control measures and safety practices. As a Construction Partnering firm, we at GLA prioritize the importance of performing and enforcing safety measures by highlighting their significance in every one of our partnering sessions. Our construction partnering facilitators devote much of their meetings to supporting our teams by identifying risk factors in their projects to prevent safety hazards through our alternative dispute resolution methods. GLA is honored to play a role in bettering the construction industry’s safety protocols— not only to protect our workers, but also the public as well.

We applaud the efforts of industry professionals and companies to ensure safer practices, just as we commend those who continue to award these efforts.

At GLA, our Construction Partnering Facilitators work with you and your team to improve safety on construction projects. Contact us today to learn more!
