MICCS promotes the adoption of safety-related industry standards that are different from and/or more stringent than, for example, rules and regulations implemented by OSHA.

The MICCS Board of Directors purposefully represents every segment of the construction industry, from general to subcontractors, owners (construction consumers), union and nonunion contractors, and companies affiliated with the industry. When the Board endorses an industry standard, the industry can be assured that this group has thoroughly considered the standard and recommended its adoption. These standards are then implemented when owners and/or contractors adopt the standards for use on their construction sites.

All construction sites are encouraged to implement and enforce these standards, though MICCS cannot and does not require them.

By working together in this fashion, MICCS and the industry has been able to raise the level of construction safety throughout Greater Indianapolis and Lafayette.
