Programs of Excellence
The Concrete Sawing and Drilling Association (CSDA) is pleased to announce the launch of the CSDA Company Certification Program for sawing and drilling contractors. This audit program has been developed by the CSDA Certification Committee to provide owners, architects, engineers, general contractors and government officials with a valuable prequalification tool, improve the knowledge and skills of cutting contractors and enhance their public image.
A third-party company provides independent oversight for the CSDA Company Certification Program. Additionally, independent auditors conduct audits on behalf of CSDA.
The first of its kind in the industry, the program aims to educate the marketplace that hiring a certified company will eliminate risks associated with hiring a sawing and drilling contractor who may otherwise be seen as another unknown subcontractor. CSDA is the only association representing the interests of cutting contractors.
Criteria for the program have been prepared by CSDA contractor members who want to advance the level of professionalism of the industry in response to a growing call from general contractors and government officials to produce verification of a company’s skills and professional qualifications.
A company must meet the following criteria to achieve certification:
- Meet the basic safety and insurance requirements of the industry
- Undertake sound operational and financial best practices
- Provide evidence it has took part in basic training or certification programs to better its employees and the company as a whole
- Successfully pass a written application review
