Construction Safety and Excellence Awards

The purpose of the CSEA is to recognize those construction companies who excel at safety performance. CSEA will closely examine each candidate's commitment to safety and occupational health management and risk control. Unlike the National AGC Safety Awards (NASA) program that limits the criteria to frequency rates, the CSEA selection process is considerably more comprehensive. Judges will look for evidence of company management commitment, active employee participation, safety training, work site hazard identification and control, and safety program innovation.

Participants will be required to complete the application forms and submit them to their local AGC Chapter. The AGC Chapters will select finalists in each category (if applicable) and submit those recommendations to AGC of America. Members of the AGC Safety & Health Committee will review the Chapter's submittals at the winter meeting. Then the finalists in each category will compete at the AGC National Convention for either a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place award. Finalists will have an opportunity to give an oral presentation in front of five judges. The first, second and third place awards will be determined after oral presentations. The winners will be announced at the Willis Safety Awards Breakfast during the AGC Annual Convention.

CSEA Application Instructions

Application forms must be completed and submitted properly for applicants to be considered for the CSEA. Improper completion may result in disqualification or a deduction in points toward the applicant's overall score which is used to determine finalists. In addition to properly completing and submitting the application, applications must be accompanied by a $250.00 application fee. If an application is being submitted through the local chapter, a nomination letter is also required.

CSEA Contact List

A list containing the contact information for Chapter Safety Professionals has been provided for any additional questions applicants may have while completing the CSEA application. Use this contact list as a resource if your chapter is a non-participating Chapter in the CSEA Process, does not have an active safety program, or does have an active safety program and needs guidance. Use this list for questions regarding the CSEA application, completing the application, submitting the application, and processes after submitting the application.
