All That Hard Work Didn’t Go Down the Drain
In 2007 the American Subcontractors Association-Houston Chapter (ASA-HC) created a safety committee to meet the needs of the members requesting safety education and assistance. In mid 2008 the chapter began developing a partnership program with OSHA. After 18 months of work and just as the program was being finalized, OSHA informed the chapter it would no longer approve partnerships. Instead of scrapping all of the work that had been done, the committee began revamping the program to make it an internal program to recognize members with high safety standards, help those who need assistance creating a safety program, promote a safe working environment on jobsites, and raise the image of the members among others in the industry (subs, GCs, architects and owners). In the spring of 2011 the Commitment To Safety Program (CTS) was launched and by the spring of 2012, ten members had been granted the CTS designation.
