TSC develops APP or HASP that enhances safety and health to be practiced with concurrent progressive construction activities

The main goal of an Accident Prevention Program (APP) or Health and Safety Program is to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses, and deaths, as well as the suffering and financial hardship these events can cause for workers, their families, and employers.

Safety and health programs help businesses:

  • Prevent workplace injuries and illnesses
  • Improve compliance with laws and regulations
  • Reduce costs, including significant reductions in workers’ compensation premiums
  • Engage workers
  • Enhance their social responsibility goals
  • Increase productivity and enhance overall business operations

You can learn more about HASP’s by downloading OSHA’s Recommended Practices for Safety & Health Programs in Construction”
