WASHINGTON - Oct. 18, 2018 - PRLog -- The National Demolition Association (NDA) announced today it has joined the Construction Coalition for a Drug- and Alcohol-Free Workplace, an industry-led initiative formed with the ultimate goal of eliminating substance abuse-related construction jobsite incidents.

CCDAFW, which is comprised of leading construction industry trade associations and partners, advocates for effective substance abuse polices and sets best practices for construction-related companies.

"The NDA Board voted unanimously to join the CCDAFW, reflecting our organization and our members' commitment to ensuring safe and healthy workplaces," said NDA President, Scott Knightly. "Safety is a top priority for NDA and joining CCDAFW was an obvious choice as we look to expand awareness on workplace safety and the resources we provide our membership and their employees. We look forward to working with the other organizations to promote a drug- and alcohol-free workplace."

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."
