It’s not all that uncommon that general contractors doing work in our region reach out to us to seek names of contractors who will bid on their work. With a membership, you’ll be on that job list. As well, our construction referral service refers thousands of ABC SEMI contractors to buyers every year. Local and national referrals are made through a computerized database of members.
So, you’ve hired your people, but they need the proper skills training, safety certifications or they need to enroll in a DOL-approved apprenticeship program. We can help! We’ve got classes set up to help develop your employees into a high functioning team. If we don’t have exactly what you’re looking for, let’s create one together!
ABC SEMI offers safety training, CPR and First Aid and more. ABC National has created a nationally-recognized STEP program to help companies track, document and improve their safety experience.
The ABC SEMI Self-Insured Workers’ Compensation Fund is a member run fund which significantly decreases Workers’ Comp costs through careful underwriting, aggressive claims management and the return of premium credits. Not to mention our nationwide negotiated discounts (FedEx, Verizon, Lowe's, etc.) that are available to members. In addition, we’ve also got associate members with the expertise in providing materials and services to the construction industry. ABC SEMI has marketing partnerships on critical construction services, substance abuse testing, and much more. Ask us to show you why membership doesn’t cost it pays!
