Safety & Health Resources

Safety Week 2022

Safety is a bond that unites us. It’s our connection to each other and to something bigger than ourselves. Connection strengthens us because it means we work together to build a stronger industry by creating a safe environment for our workers. A safe environment is a supportive environment, one in which we demonstrate that we are here for each other and our common good in every possible way.

AGC of California’s Safety and Health Council is proud to provide the tools and resources necessary to help employers ensure that everyone can do their best work and return home safely every day. When we’re connected and supported, we are better able to help ourselves and our teams stay present and focused on the job.

We ask that each AGC of California member participate in Safety Week, taking place May 2-6, 2022, with focused discussions each day and additional training to better our individual companies and our industry. Utilize the Tailgate Talks below to guide your efforts:
