Recognizing Safety Excellence

The annual AGC of California Construction Safety Excellence Awards (CSEA) was created to recognize construction companies who excel at safety performance and are committed to maintaining a safe working environment on their job sites.​

Construction Safety Excellence Award submissions are now open and close on September 30, 2022. For questions about the AGC Construction Safety Excellence Awards Program, please contact Brian Mello at mellob@agc-ca.org.

Main Construction Safety Excellence Awards (CSEA)

The AGC of California Construction Safety Excellence Award recognizes contractors for their outstanding safety programs and are divided into four divisions:

  • Building
  • Heavy/Civil/Highway
  • Specialty Contractor

​The AGC of California Safety Awards Committee will compile all hours worked for each division and utilize this data to establish categories on a sliding scale. Applicants will then be notified as to which category they will be competing in. Applicants will give a live zoom presentation to a panel of judges. (APPLY TODAY)

Specialized Safety Award Categories

In addition to the Main Construction Safety Excellence Award for a company’s overall safety performance, there are several Specialized Safety Award categories that showcase and highlight an individual’s or team’s contribution to safety in the Construction Industry. The Specialized Safety Award categories include:

  • Individual Safety Effort of a Project Superintendent
  • Safety on a High Hazard Project
  • Harry Eckstein Safety Professional of the Year Award
  • Safety on a Joint Venture
