Important: ABC Safety Standards Regarding Ad Materials
For Associated Builders and Contractors, which publishes Construction Executive, safety is a core value. ABC and its members believe that it is a moral obligation to protect anyone who sets foot on a jobsite. The world-class standard for health, safety and environment in the construction industry involves leadership commitment to develop a safety culture where each person is accountable for everyone’s safety and well-being, as well as provide the means and methods for employees to leave work in the same—or better—condition than which they arrived.
In turn, Construction Executive requests that all persons or jobsites depicted in advertising images (i.e., stock art, commissioned photography, illustrations, etc.) demonstrate the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and safety best practices that exceed OSHA standards.
