National AGC Safety Awards
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. The NASA compares an AGC member’s safety record with other AGC members according to the member size and construction type. Additionally, the NASA provides a great opportunity for members who have excellent safety records to compete for nationally recognized awards.
AGC Member Awards: The AGC Member Awards are given to members who have a zero-incidence rate or who have an incidence rate 25 percent below each occupational division’s average (AGC divisions include: Building, Highway, Federal & Heavy, Utility Infrastructure, and Associate/Specialty).
· AGC provides awards to members who have participated in the awards program for three consecutive years and have a zero-incidence rate – Certificate of Commendation.
· AGC provides awards to members who have participated in the awards program for three consecutive years and have an incidence rate below 25 percent of their division rate – Certificate of Commendation.
AGC will send all member awards to the Chapter for distribution.
30th Annual 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 members receive a confidential printout to compare their company’s safety statistics with similar size and type AGC members both locally and nationally. The NASA provides a great opportunity for 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 members with direct-hire, job-site craft labor are eligible to compete in the following divisions:
· Federal & Heavy
· Utility Infrastructure
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 completed OSHA Form 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses provides the information needed for participation in the NASA Program.
The data is tabulated to produce total lost workday case incidence rates (excluding restricted workdays). The formula for computing “incidence” is structured to multiply the incidence 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 incidence rate.
Days Away, Case Incidence Rate = N x 200,000
WH is the number of work hours for the calendar year 2019 (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 section (H), total number of cases with days away from work, of the OSHA form 300A.
What a Member Must Do to Participate: AGC members will receive a NASA participant form or application from their 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 February 12, 2020.
