For 13-years in a row, Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) has received Construction Health and Safety Excellence (CHASE) Minnesota – Level 2 Certificate of Achievement 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. AP has been a company partner in this program since 2003.

The CHASE program, originated in 2002 as a partnership between MNOSHA and AGC of MN, was designed to recognize AGC member contractors for their safety programs and performance. Level 2 replaces the previous White Level and is geared towards AGC members who desire recognition for having a more comprehensive safety program. In order to achieve Level 2 status, AP has annually completed the following requirements: develop and implement a comprehensive written safety and health program; employ a safety and health program administrator; conduct an orientation for all new employees in the safety and health programs of the company; weekly employee safety meetings; weekly site safety inspections; develop, a prohibited substance policy and testing program; a six-foot fall-protection policy; no willful violations within the past three years; no repeat violations within the past three years; no fatalities/catastrophes with violations within the past three years; qualifying inspection by AGC of MN representative(s); employee involvement in the safety and health program; maintain a total case injury/illness incidence rate (three-year average) below Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS); OSHA 10-hour course for all field supervisors; and submit annual activity report to AGC of MN.

Safety Philosophy: Incident and Injury Free (IIF) Workplace
No incident or injury is acceptable, ever. AP embraces an Incident and Injury Free (IIF) safety culture. IIF is a culture of personal leadership where individual and collective responsibility creates an environment where incidents and injuries are unacceptable. We accomplish this by creating a culture where our employees and those of our subcontractors have a high level of care and concern for their fellow workers. All AP employees are committed to a personal responsibility for keeping our workplace incident and injury free. We believe everyone should go home safely at the end of the day to their family and friends.

AP’s commitment to safety is reflected in the success of being recognized by OSHA as one of the safest companies in the construction industry and continually providing lower than industry average EMR ratings year after year.
