Labor Commissioner Josh Dobson

Carolinas AGC hosted this NC Virtual Luncheon and Q&A featuring NC Labor Commissioner Josh Dobson and his key staff on Wednesday, June 9, 20201. The commissioner stressed the importance of fall protection, safety, and using the NC Department of Labor’s consultative bureau to get safety advice on jobsites with no citations or punitive damages. Some of the top safety challenges cited by NCDOL staff involve fall protection in residential construction, lack of eye protection, general fall protection and ladders. CAGC continues its strong alliance with the labor departments in the Carolinas to improve safety in the construction industry in North and South Carolina. “You can’t get any more relevant than being safe,” Dobson told CAGC attendees.
