About Better Builder®

Through policy change and community education, the Better Builder® Program seeks to improve conditions in the Texas construction industry by advocating for the following workplace standards: living wages, OSHA safety training, worker’s compensation coverage, local hiring goals and independent third-party monitoring. 

Better Builder® Standards

We hope that more construction projects choose to adopt Better Builder® standards for all workers and their subcontracting chain. Better Builder® standards are practical to implement and have a huge impact on the safety and economic security of those who labor in the Texas construction industry.

39% of workers received workers' compensation for the first time​
