The BAC Foreman's Club is comprised of foremen, supervisors, and office personnel. In the 1920's, long before OSHA existed, this unique organization was started by Company foremen to share concerns about safety and promote better construction practices. Its purpose is to review and oversee the safety program created by BAC. The Club is effective in communicating information on safety and occupational health issues. Dinner meetings are held periodically during which invited speakers present topics in their areas of expertise. Subjects covered at these meetings include trenching and excavation, first aid/CPR/AED, hazardous materials handling, fall protection, respirators, scaffolding, repetitive motion injuries, and electrical hazards.
Within the Foreman's Club is the voluntary Safety Committee. At their monthly meetings, the group discusses near-misses and proposes alternate construction methods to avoid injury and illness. Decisions are made in a timely manner and are enforced through our corporate HASP.
