Navigating jobsite risks is an integral part of construction management. AGC’s Risk Management Department employs a comprehensive approach, aimed at not only identifying and analyzing potential sources of construction risk but also equipping contractors with the tools and knowledge needed to safeguard their projects and businesses.
