New Safety f Program for lAGC Stated v , An intensified safety pro gram for the construction in dustry has been announced by the Southern California i Chapter of Associated General Contractors, whose member firms perform ap- proximately $1.5 billion of contract construction in 11 gouthern counties of California each year. The AGC ha3 maintained a continuing program to promote safety in construction for many years, but its executives feel that a more positive approach is needed to produce the results in accident prevention which can he accomplished in the industry. The new approach will be in line with the national AGC Safety Certification Program, according to John White, chairman of the chap ter safety committee. Objectives The principal objectives of this program, Mr. Witte ex plained, will be the follow ing: 1 To establish positive evidence of effective self-po- ricing of safety activities by the construction industry. 2 To set definite goals for reducing disabling injuries on the 10b site. 3 To give proper recognition to AGC member firms achieving these goals. "In other words," Witte said, "the AGC wants its members to be able to prove that they are safe contrac tors. We plan to accomplish this by conferring annual safety recognition certificates upon our contractor members who carry on an approved safety program in their operations. "We intend to conduct this program with increasing in tensification this is, by pro gressively better goals of construction safety." , ' G " :';;0 I VIM N 1 ' 1 1 i f i i ; rv ..
