Mission and History
The Construction Industry Safety Coalition (CISC) is made up of 30 trade associations, representing associations from all sectors of the construction industry, including commercial building, heavy industrial production, home building, road repair, specialty trade contractors, material suppliers, and construction equipment manufacturers. Workplace safety and health is a priority for all members of the coalition, and each is committed to helping create safer construction jobsites for workers. CISC was formed in 2013 to provide data and information to OSHA on regulatory, interpretive and policy initiatives.
The CISC has its roots in a long-standing group of construction industry trade associations who for decades have met to discuss safety and health initiatives in the construction industry. The Construction Association Safety and Health Information Network or “CASHIN” has historically been involved in employee safety and health matters. CASHIN members meet periodically to discuss injury and illness trends in construction, outreach and assistance, and OSHA initiatives that impact the construction industry.
