Construction is a dangerous business, one of the most dangerous. It's a challenge to keep people safe and healthy on the job, and no one can do it alone. That's why we hired a new Safety Director, and consulting firm, Haztek…who specializes in safety and savings. We offer various ways for our Members to increase safety at their jobsites. Working together, we'll help you save time, money, and most importantly, lives. We also offer an array of services designed to enhance contractor competitiveness and protect the health and safety of our workers.
