Associated Builders and Contractors founded the Safe and Healthy Construction Pledge in May 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic highlighted the need for a redoubled commitment to safety under new protocols. ABC invites all U.S. contractors across industry segments to sign the pledge, and all construction trade associations to promote it.

ABC is a national construction industry trade association established in 1950 that represents more than 21,000 members. Founded on the merit shop philosophy, ABC and its 69 chapters help members develop people, win work and deliver that work safely, ethically and profitably for the betterment of the communities in which ABC and its members work.
