WORKSAFE is the nation’s first safety program involving a public-private partnership. The Iowa Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Iowa OSHA) and Master Builders of Iowa launched WORKSAFE in September 2012 by offering a safety service that is a customized approach, unique to each project owner and job site team. WORKSAFE is a construction job site safety program that consists of pre-construction planning, job site surveys focused on preventing hazardous conditions from occurring and job site recognition that safety is a top priority for all involved in the project.  We encourage all owners, design professionals, contractors and service providers to learn more about the WORKSAFE program.  Partner with us in leading the way toward injury prevention, preservation of life and ultimately, safe job sites.

New Tiered Program: 

Your company can upgrade your recognition from the “basic” WORKSAFE program to the NEW Tiered Program. Your project can now be recognized as a Bronze, Silver or Gold level project. Each distinction comes with a set of requirements that the project must meet in order to hang the “tiered level” banner.

  • Bronze Level: Add $200 to package pricing - Minimum of 4 enrolled visits, of which 1 visit is unannounced; corrective actions need to be remediated / returned (with signatures and photo proof) within 48 hours of issuance; project required to have 3 best practices (in lieu of 2); minimum of at least one company representative onsite that has OSHA 30 certification or WORKSAFE Certified certification; minimum of at least 1 onsite training based upon visit findings.
  • Silver Level: Add $400 to package pricing - Minimum of 6 enrolled visits, of which 2 visits are unannounced; corrective actions need to be remediated / returned (with signatures and photo proof) within 24 hours of issuance; project required to have 4 best practices (in lieu of 2); minimum of at least two company representatives onsite that have OSHA 30 certification or WORKSAFE Certified certification; minimum of at least 2 onsite trainings based upon visit findings; as well as require job-wide “stretch-and-flex” daily.
  • Gold Level: Add $600 to package pricing - Minimum of 9 enrolled visits, of which 4 visits are unannounced; corrective actions need to be remediated / returned (with signatures and photo proof) within 8 hours of issuance; project required to have 5 best practices (in lieu of 2); minimum of at least two company representatives onsite that have OSHA 30 certification or WORKSAFE Certified certification; minimum of at least 3 onsite trainings based upon visit findings; as well as required job-wide “stretch-and-flex” daily.

    * Failure to maintain requirements (scoring average, turn-around time on corrective actions, trainings, etc.) OR a serious accident / near-miss accident, CAN cause a contractor’s status to be reviewed, and potentially knocked down a “level”, until corrective actions and/or new procedures are in place.

WORKSAFE Package: 

  • Pre-Construction Safety Review
  • Job Site Safety Surveys
  • Project Recognition

​​WORKSAFE Certified: 

This new program is specifically developed safety training that will enhance the knowledge base of jobsite supervisory personnel. To become WORKSAFE Certified, individuals will need to satisfactorily complete a 2-day training curriculum that is primarily focused on hazard awareness and mitigation. 

Though this program is not meant to replace a 30-Hour OSHA class, it does provide a higher degree of focus on construction-specific safety education and training. The WORKSAFE Certification is also an important component of the new WORKSAFE Tiered Program. To qualify for an upgraded WORKSAFE Project level, one requirement may be to have representatives holding the WORKSAFE Certified credential.

We would be happy to explain the benefits that WORKSAFE can bring to your jobsite.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us.  We look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
