Building on momentum with some of the region’s largest contractors, Salmon-Safe today releases newly updated accreditation standards for pollution prevention in large-scale construction management with the goal of helping environmentally innovative builders achieve zero sediment runoff across their entire operations. First piloted by the Washington operation of Turner Construction, Salmon-Safe’s accreditation is the nation’s first independent accreditation program to recognize construction professionals’ excellence in water quality protection practices.

The accreditation program recognizes construction companies who commit to implementing pollutant control and runoff protection measures everywhere they work, even if the sites they are constructing will not necessarily be eligible for Salmon-Safe certification. Accredited companies further commit to ensuring that Salmon-Safe practices are carried out by all subcontractors and employees.
