September 24, 2008
On September 22, 2008, the Department of Labor (DOL) awarded AGC with the prestigious Susan Harwood Grant Training program for the seventh year in a row. The  Susan Harwood Training Grant is offered by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) within DOL.  The grant is awarded on a competitive basis to organizations to provide safety and health training  and education programs that focus on recognition, avoidance, and prevention of safety and health hazards in the workplace. AGC will update and continue to deliver the Focus Four Hazards in Construction training.  This training seminar focuses on preventing frequently–cited construction hazards.  The Focus Four Hazards in Construction are conducted as one-day (eight–hour) awareness training seminars focusing on the four greatest dangers of working on a construction site–falls, electrocutions, caught–between and struck–by’s.  These seminars are held at Chapter locations nationwide beginning in December 2008. Please visit Susan Harwood Grant Training for more information on the training program.  Dates and locations for the training seminars will be updated shortly.
