As a direct result of our Membership in ICPI, and the access that has provided us, we were able to create an OSHA compliant Safety Manual while implementing an ongoing Safety program that was nothing short of first rate. The ‘head start’ this program provided us helped reduce our Insurance rates, create a safety-first culture and ultimately, grow our business by enabling us to utilize our resources in other areas. “ ICPI has issued Safety Meeting Outlines since 2016 with nearly 150 outlines available to member contractors.
