The Chicagoland Associated General Contractors looks forward to carrying on the tradition of successfully coordinated Safety Stand Downs each spring. We encourage our members to participate in this year's Stand Down during the week of May 7-11. It is entirely up to you to determine which day of Stand Down Week works best for a particular jobsite.
Chicagoland AGC Stand Downs provide a leadership opportunity for your firm to demonstrate its commitment to safety and the well-being of your workforce. Briefly put, CAGC Safety Stand Downs enable companies that know the value of safety training and comprehensive jobsite inspection to voluntarily cease work for approximately thirty minutes to provide focused training on a particular topic. This meeting provides effective communication of safety policies, goals and expectations through all levels of your team, and improves employee morale.
Easy-to-implement curriculum handouts covering this year's topic, worker self-empowerment regarding safety, will be made available to Stand Down companies along with hard hat stickers for all participants.
Please indicate the appropriate contact person for your company in the fields below so that we may best coordinate all aspects of this worthwhile program.
Thank you for your pledge to Stand Down this May to increase safety awareness in our industry and to the public.
