Egan Joins the CHASE Program

Thursday, March 23rd, 2023

Safety first, safety always! Egan joined the Construction Health and Safety Excellence (CHASE) program along with 42 other Associated General Contractor (AGC) members. 

The CHASE program is a partnership with Minnesota OSHA and AGC of Minnesota. The program is designed to recognize contractors for their superior safety programs and safety performance, while providing incentives for the partnership. The incentives include:

  •  Receive written recognition by AGC and MNOSHA
  •  No penalty for non-serious violations
  •  Increased communication with MNOSHA
  •  Receive maximum good faith penalty reduction
  •  Possible consideration as “best value” contractor

AGC Director of Safety and Education Development Matt Semerad stated, “Egan Company has always been a progressive leader in safety and a mentor to many within the industry.  AGC and CHASE are excited to have Egan Company as a member, but more importantly, a contributor in thought and action.”

Women in Construction Week 2023

Monday, March 13th, 2023

The month of March marks not only Women’s History Month, but also recognizes Women in Construction! Only 10% of the construction industry is made up of women and as such we believe it’s important to celebrate and encourage all women who are blazing the trail for other women to join the industry. Egan Company was a corporate sponsor of this year’s celebration, revolving around the theme of “Many Paths, One Mission.”

Throughout the week, the National Association of Women in Construction hosted a series of local and national events. A few of the events that our Egan team members attended included:

  • Pioneers in Skirts Viewing hosted by Dunwoody College of Technology at Ungerman: attendees watched and discussed this social impact documentary and met Peggy Flanagan, Minnesota’s 50th Lieutenant Governor. 
  • Industry Showcase & Happy Hour hosted by Women in NECA: participants networked with peers and learned about local trade associations and organizations.
  • Rosies of the Rail hosted by Lunda Construction: a roundtable discussion was held around the question “What is your ideal work day?” with members of the Southwest Light Rail Transit project team. Egan’s in-house General Counsel, Erin Neils, was a panelist for the event.
  • Women’s Leadership Panel & Brunch hosted by JE Dunn Construction: women leaders in the industry shared some of the knowledge and experience they’ve built over their careers. 

Many Paths, One Mission.
