CHASE Program


One of the primary safety resources offered by AGC New Mexico is the opportunity to partner with NM OSHA through the Construction Health and Safety Excellence Cooperative program, CHASE. This cooperative NM OSHA partnership offers benefits to those AGC members who qualify, in exchange for following prescribed standards in their safety programs and maintaining low incidence rates.

The CHASE program was first signed in 2001 and was the second such partnership in the country as well as the first such partnership between an AGC Chapter and an OSHA state plan.

The continuing goal of CHASE is to encourage outstanding safety performance by employers and employees alike, to decrease injuries and fatalities in the construction industry and exceed NM OSHA regulations on every job.

“CHASE is a wonderful program designed to help keep us and others on our toes when it comes to achieving safety excellence. Each company is responsible for developing, maintaining, implementing, then follow its own safety program. The CHASE program ensures a company does what it says by adding additional benefits. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
