New! Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Resources

We are proud to partner with AGC of America to offer our members resources for mental health and suicide prevention. Recent studies from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have found high rates of adults struggling with mental health or substance use and many seriously considering suicide. The construction industry has the highest rate of suicide at 53.2 per 100,000 U.S. workers. That rate is four times greater than the national average and five times greater than that of all other construction fatalities combined. Resources available to members to support their employees and fight this epidemic include Mental Health PSAs. Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Task Force, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Forum, and more. Visit the Mental Health and Suicide Prevention webpage for more information.


Safety Training

Carolinas AGC offers a wide variety of safety, education and training classes. Courses are taught throughout the Carolinas as well as virtually.
