Welcome to the KCA
KCA Builds Pennsylvania!
The KCA contractor is dedicated to improving the construction industry daily by focusing on safety, education & training, labor relations, community service, career development, and government relations. As a member-driven association, the KCA worked with its members as well as other industry stakeholders to create a strategic plan to steer us in a direction to improve Pennsylvania's construction industry over the next few years. Strategies for Today & Tomorrow: The KCA Strategic Plan 2022 to 2024. Please do not hesitate to contact the KCA staff for an update.
Mental Health & Suicide Prevention Resources
Mental health and well-being are high priorities for the KCA. 1 in 5 construction workers struggle with anxiety, depression and other mental health issues; additionally, construction has the second highest rate of suicides among all occupations. The KCA is committed to helping our members and the construction industry by offering resources and a network to help save lives.
Along with raising awareness and making it ok to talk about mental health issues, KCA encourages safety talks on the topic, as well as posting the KCA Mental Health Resources poster at your office and on your jobsites. To order your free posters, please contact the KCA.
Mental Health Task Force - The KCA established this task force comprised of members and other professionals who are passionate on this topic. This group is charged with developing and/or promoting resources for construction companies and their workers. If interested in getting involved, please contact the KCA.
The National Suicide Prevention Line 9-8-8 was launched to function like 9-1-1, plus it's FREE, CONFIDENTIAL and available 24/7. For a crisis number for your county, please visit: Pennsylvania Crisis Hotlines.
What's the Story Behind the New Safety Logo?
In 2016, the KCA launched a safety rebranding, coming up with the tagline: Teamwork Improves Safety! From the End User to the General Contractor to the Sub & Specialty Contractors to consultants, it takes an entire team on the jobsite to achieve safety excellence. In 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, that teamwork mentality extended beyond the jobsite and we all looked after each other to make sure we make it through these challenging times: Teamwork Improves Safety & Life!
