Last week, AGC of California earned a major victory for contractors working on projects which require the disposal of treated wood waste. Earlier this month, California Department Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) notified companies that regulations that allowed for treated wood waste to be handled with alternative management standards were set to expire after December 31, 2020. After that date, all hazardous treated wood waste managed in California would have had to be stored and manifested as hazardous waste and transported to class I hazardous waste landfills for disposal.

Based on the new Cal/OSHA Emergency Regulations for COVID-19 Prevention, we recognize that members have a higher need for on-site COVID-19 testing. For that reason, AGC of California is proud to partner with Innovative Human Performance Safety (IHP Safety) to bring our members on-site diagnostic polymerize chain reaction (PCR) testing for COVID-19. This testing is considered highly reliable and results have an average 24-hour turnaround period.
