At ASA-HC, safety is our primary focus. We pride ourselves on providing the knowledge and tools our members need to create a safer construction industry. Our Safety & Health Committee is charged with bringing awareness to subcontractors and the construction companies they work with, and serving as a resource for individuals who promote safety in the workplace.


Safe construction practices are key to keeping your valued team members protected on the job. ASA-HC’s Accessing Safety Knowledge (ASK) sheets are a great resource for jobsite toolbox talks or quick refreshers for employees.

4. When Incidents Happen ASK Sheet and Logs
ASA-HC’s Safety & Health committee has developed a tool companies can use to assist them in determining when their employees, and others in the construction industry, are more likely to have a safety incident. Knowing when incidents are more likely to occur on jobsites, companies can limit their risk with targeted safety training.

The “When Incidents Happen Log” is a simple spreadsheet that allows for input of date, day of week, time of incident, when during the shift it happened, seriousness level, how it happened. Once the information is entered, the information can then be sorted to show when incidents are more likely to happen. Tracking incidents in this simple spreadsheet can aid you in seeing trends that you may not have spotted without the log.

5. Vehicle Safety ASK Sheets
