In the commercial construction industry, over 70% of falls happen while working on roofs, ladders, scaffolding and staging. Most of Chamberlin’s work is performed in these areas, and they understand the severity of the risk and absolute need for proper safety precautions and policies. Chamberlin placed third in the AGC CSEA Specialty 1.2M - 2M work hours category.

Chamberlin achieved STEP Diamond, which is the highest level of recognition in the program.
