MG McGrath Architectural Surfaces and MG McGrath Architectural Glass & Glazing have achieved the Construction Health and Safety Excellence Minnesota (CHASE) Level 3 award from the partnering program of Association of General Contractors of Minnesota (AGC of MN) and the Minnesota Occupation Safety and Health Division (MNOSHA) of the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry. Level 3 is the peak level of MNOSHA compliance partnerships. Both MG McGrath companies achieved this award after demonstrating outstanding safety performance by all employees to decrease injuries and fatalities in the construction industry. Tom Schoenecker and JoAnn Toth represented MG McGrath while accepting the awards on behalf of our companies!
The specific goals of CHASE Minnesota:
- To reduce by 3 percent annually (see MNOSHA’s strategic plan) the number of injuries, illnesses and fatalities affecting participant employers, with a focus on eliminating injuries and fatalities resulting from those hazards that are the four leading causes of death on construction sites (falls, struck-by, caught in or between, and electrocutions).
- To increase the number of construction contractors that implement effective safety and health programs and provide effective safety and health training for management, supervisors and employees.
- To recognize those contractors where managers and employees work together to develop safety and health management systems that go beyond basic compliance with all applicable OSHA standards and result in immediate and long-term prevention of job-related injuries and illnesses.
- To promote open lines of communication between MNOSHA and the construction industry in pursuit of safety.
The partnership charter acknowledges the importance of providing a safe, healthful work environment in construction and seeks a working relationship that creates mutual trust and respect among all parties, including project owners and construction workers, involved in the construction process. – Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry
