AGC Receives Grant for Safety Training
The Associated General Contractors of America will launch a new fall protection safety training program next year thanks to a new federal safety grant the association is being awarded. The association will use the $130,000 Susan Hardwood Training Grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to tackle one of the most pressing safety issues in construction, officials said.
“The new training program will help us continue to make construction safer for millions of workers,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, the association’s chief executive officer. “This is another sign of the commitment our association and our members have to improving construction safety.”
