Safety Awards

AGC has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to safety in the construction workplace, and has continued to reinforce our credibility in the construction industry and safety communities.

These prestigious awards and the public recognition that comes with them help propel AGC towards its goal of enhancing the public image of AGC and its members. Our award programs provide the opportunity to document our members’ achievements in safety, receive well-deserved recognition in the industry, and provide a competitive advantage.

ROSE Award

The purpose of the Oregon-Columbia Chapter’s ROSE (Recognition of Safety Excellence) Award is to recognize chapter leaders who demonstrate safety excellence. The award process provides:

  • Great tool to conduct a safety program self-evaluation.
  • Excellent way to document safety achievements.
  • Share company safety and health accomplishments with team members.
  • Receive well-deserved peer recognition.

The ROSE award is a stand-alone award, and is the initial step to participating in the AGC of America’s Construction Safety Excellence Awards (CSEA) competition. The process typically begins each year in October, and ROSE Awards are presented at the chapter’s annual business meeting each January.

Why Our Members Love AGC

We thank our local AGC safety consultants so much for the support provided as we went through our first application process for ROSE and CSEA. It was like we had the keynote speaker, Derek Daly’s, pit crew behind us (powered by AGC Oregon!). Beyond the award, the entire experience was an incredibly informative learning opportunity. We look forward to staying engaged.
