AGC’s Construction Safety, Health & Environmental Conference is the industry’s foremost annual conference to hone in on the most critical safety, health and environmental compliance and risk issues impacting the business of construction.

Is your jobsite employing the latest jobsite practices recommended by OSHA and the CDC? Are you aware of the latest reporting requirements issued by OSHA? The South Florida AGC and member firm Peckar & Abramson want to assist you in navigating the uncertainty on your job sites created by COVID-19 with a webinar on Wednesday June 24th at 10 am.

Last month, The South Florida AGC and Milwaukee Tools conducted a survey of our region’s Safety Community. We wanted to understand how those tasked with developing and implementing COVID-19 related safety standards did so. We were interested in knowing what was being done on the jobsite, how safety personnel came to their decisions, and if the long lead time for PPE was improving.

The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the AGC-backed Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act (H.R. 7010), which would make substantial improvements to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Now, the Senate must take action and pass this important legislation to save construction jobs.

This open call for committee participation is open to all members of our industry, WHETHER YOU ARE A MEMBER OR NOT. If you are interested in serving, we are happy to have you. Please contact me for information on available committee positions and what your service would entail.  

The Treasury Department’s new Paycheck Protection Program directive gives many construction contractors additional guidance that we have been seeking. It provides the clarity that many need to decide how to proceed with their loans. Most important, the Department has opted to provide a safe harbor provision for firms that self-certified their need for loans that totaled less than $2 million.

Miami-Dade County offers a free expedited plan review program for new construction of developments or projects that provide workforce or affordable housing units. Attend free workshops to learn more about the program including incentives of building affordable and workforce housing in unincorporated Miami-Dade County.

AGC’s Virtual Federal Contractors Conference brings federal agencies directly to you to generate a more candid dialogue and practical information for contractors on issues specific to the federal space
