AGC of America has announced its 2012 National AGC Safety Awards (NASA) Program.
The NASA program has been an ongoing effort to offer AGC members an opportunity to evaluate their safety record. Participating contractors receive a confidential printout to compare their company’s safety statistics with similar size and type AGC contactor members both locally and nationally. NASA also provides a great opportunity for contractor members with excellent safety records to compete for nationally recognized awards. Additionally, this information may be used to satisfy an owner’s pre-bid requests for you company’s safety performance.
A company must participate in the NASA Program for three (3) consecutive years to be eligible for an award. CAWP encourages companies to participate each year to maintain eligibility and to receive safety statistics. AGC will send all awards and safety statistics to CAWP for distribution.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
Transfer the company OSHA 300A information onto the below Participant Form and click on Submit.
Participant Forms must be received by Wednesday, January 23, 2013.
2012 National AGC Safety Awards
Why You Should Participate:
The National AGC Safety Awards (NASA) program has been an ongoing effort since 1991 to offer AGC members an opportunity to evaluate their safety record. Participating contractors receive a confidential printout to compare their company's safety statistics with similar size and type AGC contractor members both locally and nationally. NASA provides a great opportunity for contractor members with excellent safety records to compete for nationally recognized awards. Additionally, this information can be used to assist in determining if additional accident prevention and loss-control measures are necessary.
Who Can Participate:
AGC contractors with direct-hire, job-site craft labor are eligible to compete in one or more of the following categories:
- Building - Heavy - Associate/Specialty
- Highway & Heavy - Municipal/Utilities
How the Program Works:
This program is similar to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (BLS OSHA) recordkeeping systems.
The data is tabulated to produce total lost workday case incident rates (excluding restricted workdays). The formula for computing "incident" is structured to multiply the incident cases involving days away from work (N) times 200,000. The resulting product is then divided by the work hours of exposure (WH). The formula is the days away case incident rate.
The formula follows: Days Away, Case Incident Rate =(N x 200,000) / WH
(WH) is the number of work hours for the calendar year 2011 (including office hours). N is the number of days-away-from-work cases, which represents the number of cases resulting in days away from work, but does not include job transfer or restricted activity. N is obtained from the total amount of entries recorded in the Number of Cases section (H) of the OSHA form 300A.
The completed OSHA 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses provides the information needed for contractor participation in the NASA Program. Days-away-from-work cases is found in section (H), fatality information can be obtained from the number of cases section (G) and the work hours can be found in the establishment information section.
What a Contractor Must Do to Participate:
National AGC contractor members receive a NASA form or application from their home AGC Chapter. Transfer the appropriate information from the OSHA form 300A, including the work-hour data, to the NASA participant form or application and provide it to your local chapter by their deadline.
