Recognizing AGC Contractor Members for Safety Excellence Since 1926, the National AGC Safety Awards (NASA) program has been an ongoing effort to offer AGC members an opportunity to evaluate their safety record. NASA compares a 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 to compete for nationally recognized awards that have excellent safety records.
AGC contractor 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 2008, 2009 and 2010 in order to be eligible to receive an award in 2011.
How to enter
Each chapter must submit an entry on behalf of the member and entries must be submitted electronically by the Chapter using the National AGC Reporting Form.
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 4 divisions: less than 50 general contractor members, 50-100 general contractor members, 100-200 general contractor members and over 200 general contractor members.
- 1st Place for each division - Plaques
- 2nd and 3rd Place winners - Certificates of Excellence
AGC Member Awards
Safety awards are given to members who have an incident rate 25% below each division's average and members who have a zero incident rate in the following divisions: Building, Highway, Heavy/Industrial, Municipal/Utilities and Associate/Specialty.
- AGC provides awards to members who have participated in the awards program for three consecutive years and who have an incident rate below 25% of their division rate - Certificates 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 will send all member awards to their home chapter for later distribution of awards at chapter events.
