CCC Signs CAMSafety Alliance

CCC Signs CAMSafety Alliance

On August 9, 2019, the Construction Association of Michigan (CAM) entered into an alliance agreement with Commercial Contracting Corporation (CCC) on their WMR Murchie Science Building Expansion at the U of M Flint campus. The alliance promotes ongoing training, site inspection, and use of the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) Consultation, Education and Training (CET) resources to encourage and support continued safety awareness with the intent to reduce the potential for injuries on the jobsite.

The CAMSafety Alliance Program is an opportunity for the association and a member company to partner on a particular project to promote the dialogue of safety and health.  For more information about the program, contact our Safety & Education Director Jason Griffin at griffin@buildwithcam.com.

Alliance Program

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) and the Construction Association of Michigan (CAM) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful workplaces. To that end, MIOSHA and CAM, have formed an alliance to provide CAM members and other with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers in the construction industry.

While participation by individual employers is voluntary, CAM acknowledges that contractors, who embrace the goals of the alliance and who strive to provide a safe and healthy workplace, will experience a decrease in workplace accidents and illnesses, and a decrease in workers’ compensation costs.

CAMSafety Presents Free Fall Protection Training

On August 15, Dick Gober and Pat Palmer of Flaherty Sales/Werner, and CAMSafety partnered to bring an important safety program on ladder safety and fall protection practices to the CAM training center as part of OSHA’s Safe + Sound Week. Falls continue to be the leading killer of construction workers, and according to a study done by the Center for Construction Research and Education (CPWR), falls from ladders accounted for 24% of all fall-related fatalities during the period of 2011 to 2015. These incidents are preventable. 

The presentation included equipment demos, hands-on exercises, and discussions on inspections and care, post-fall condition procedures, OSHA and insurance compliance, and more.
