CHASE Partnership

CHASE Partnership

CHASE PARTNERSHIP

The Construction Health And Safety Excellence (CHASE) program began in 2002 as a partnership between Minnesota OSHA and AGC of Minnesota. The program is designed to recognize AGC member contractors for their safety programs and performance, while providing incentives for partnership.

A recent CHASE Level 3 signing at the Hotel Viking Lakes Project for Kraus-Anderson Construction.  This level 3 project has five CHASE contractors working on it (Kraus-Anderson Construction, Danny's Construction, Hunt Electric, ECSI, and Northland Concrete and Masonry).

LEVEL 1

Level 1 is geared toward AGC members who desire recognition for meeting minimum requirements of a safety and health program. All AGC members are encouraged to apply for Level 1 status.

LEVEL 2

Level 2 is geared toward AGC members who desire recognition for having a more comprehensive safety program.
