SESAC is a group of Colorado based steel erection firms that are both union and non-union. They employ an estimated 700 employees and together work about 1.4 million hours per year. All members share the goal of reducing or eliminating serious accidents in an industry that has historically been recognized as one of the most dangerous in the U.S.A.
The SESAC organization deals with safety issues only. Matters of legal, labor relations, marketing and competitiveness are not part of its charter and practice. This allows the group of otherwise competitive contractors to unify and work together to sort out the maze of safety regulations and share improved safety and health ideas among the group. An idea or training class that might otherwise give one contractor a competitive advantage is instead shared with all the group to help all employees work safe and injury free, as well as improve the industry as a whole. By agreeing to work together, they have pooled their funds to employ full time safety consultants that specialize in steel erection safety and each gets the benefits of these safety assistants to help with their company's safety program.
