CCDAFW, which is comprised of leading construction industry trade associations and partners, advocates for effective substance abuse polices and sets best practices for construction-
"The NDA Board voted unanimously to join the CCDAFW, reflecting our organization and our members' commitment to ensuring safe and healthy workplaces,"
Since the coalition was formed in 2012, nearly 6,000 companies have pledged to create and maintain a substance abuse-free workplace. The coalition also provides resources to companies to help implement and strengthen substance abuse policies.
"It is our mission to ensure all construction employees go home in the same – or better – condition than they arrived on the jobsite," said Michael Bellaman, president and chief executive officer of Associated Builders and Contractors, a founding member of the coalition. "To do this, we need a rock-solid culture of world class safety across the construction sector, which includes a workplace environment free of substance abuse. We are pleased to be joined by the National Demolition Association, which will help broaden our reach into different parts of the industry to help us reach out goal."
