Keeping Safety Fun!
Summer Safety Fair Fun!

afety awareness and injury prevention was the goal—with a strong undercurrent of fun—at the annual Associated General Contractors, or AGC, of Alaska Safety Fair, held July 26 in the Davis Constructors & Engineers parking lot in Anchorage.

Children and adults were invited to explore a fire truck, play in a giant sandbox with construction toys, check out some real construction equipment such as a crane and a semi-truck, swoop ducks into a net, try to sink volunteers at the dunk tank, and learn about electrical safety, proper fall-prevention equipment, and more. As attendees visited all the booths and collected stickers, they were invited to take part in the treats available: popcorn, root beer floats, snow cones, and more. The free barbecue and family fun day also offered attendees a chance to win prizes for competing in carnival-style games with a construction twist.

AGC would like to thank partner Davis Constructors & Engineers for hosting the yearly event as well as Swalling General Contractors; ASRC Construction; Parker, Smith & Feek; AIH; WeBuildAlaska; the Construction Leadership Council; and Enstar, along with Broken Tooth Brewing and the Anchorage Fire Department for partnering in the event. AGC would also like to thank booth hosts 3M Alaska, the Alaska Occupational Safety and Health section; the Alaska Safety Alliance; Carlile Transportation; Chugach Electric; Construction Leadership Council; Colaska; Denali Industrial Supply; Alaska Department of Natural Resources; Eagle Enterprises; Enstar; GC Handrail; Granite Construction; Loken Construction; Marsh & McLennan; the National Association of Women in Construction; and SafeLogic.
