ABC’s Sizemore Appointed to Serve on OSHA Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health

From ABC National

WASHINGTON, May 27—Associated Builders and Contractors today announced that Greg Sizemore, ABC vice president of health, safety, environment and workforce development, has been appointed by the U.S. Department of Labor to serve as a representative for U.S. construction employers on the Occupational Health and Safety Administration’s Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health, which provides advice and assistance to the assistant secretary on occupational safety and health in construction standards.

As one of 15 individuals selected, Sizemore will serve a two-year term on ACCSH, which was established in 1987 to advise the assistant secretary for OSHA on setting construction standards and policy matters arising in the administration concerning safety and health provisions under the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act and the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.

“It is an absolute honor to continue to serve the construction industry in this capacity,” said Sizemore. “By assessing and advancing the safety conditions in the construction industry, I can help ensure employers are sending their employees home in the same—or better—condition than when they arrive on the jobsite. This important work takes leadership, dedication and partnership from all facets of our industry, and I’m looking forward to working in tandem with other committee members and OSHA to continue to raise the bar for safety in construction.”

In his role at ABC, Sizemore is a key liaison between the construction industry and the public sector on safety and workforce development initiatives. He oversees a network of 800 education programs and leads ABC’s health, safety, environment and workforce development initiatives. Sizemore is also responsible for ABC’s STEP Safety Management System, a benchmarking improvement tool that dramatically increases safety performance among participants by reducing recordable incidents by up to 85%, with the best-performing companies 655% safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average.
