As you are aware, putting together an USACE APP Program is a very time consuming and exhausting endeavor.  But if you give up because it's "too hard", the USACE will only scratch you off their contractor list and move on.  Some business out there, that do the same kind of work as you,  will do the "hard"  things necessary to be awarded the contract, because they realize it will be worth the effort in the long run.

BUT, it's not that hard.  It's very time consuming, a couple hours MAX, but not hard.

We have put together a template, written in Microsoft WORD, that you can use and EDIT to put together your own Accident Prevention Program that should meet the Army Corps of Engineers' requirements.

 You will still need to polish and make your submittal document "site specific", but 90% - 95 % of the document is pretty "standard issue stuff".  The 90% - 95% is what we provide.  YOU make up the other 5% -10%.  But "your mama didn't raise no dummy", and you can do it, in a couple hours...... if you have the WILL to do it.

The USACE APP manual that you will put together, must meet local USACE requirements and meet or exceed the requirements set forth in their regulation manual, the EM 385-1-1, and other publications, manuals, etc.   Also, depending on the type of work you are bidding will determine whether you need to submit an "Abbreviated" APP or a full blown "Expanded" APP.  Regardless, we can help you with either one.

We have put together two manuals: an Abbreviated APP and an Expanded APP........The Abbreviated APP addresses @ 16  components.  The Expanded APP has over 50 components (see further below....)

Here's a list of the Abbreviated APP Components: 

 Here's a link to the Abbreviated APP Checklist USACE Website >>   Abbreviated APP Checklist << Please click your "back  arrow" to return to this site   
  • Signature Sheet

  • Background Information

  • Statement of Safety and Health Policy

  • Responsibilities and Lines of Authority

  • Training

  • Procedures for Jobsite Inspections

  • Accident Reporting / Man-hours Worked

  • Emergency Planning and Action Plan

  • Drinking Water, Sanitary Facilities

  • First Aid/CPR training

  • Personal Protective Equipment

  • Machine Guards and Safety Devices

  • Hazardous Substances

  • Traffic Control

  • Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout)

  • Driving, Working on Equipment, Boats, etc.

The Abbreviated APP manual includes the above 16 components (the 90-95% you will need). The final 5-10%, YOU ADD, YOU will include:

  1.  Site Specific work issues
  2. Job Performance details, and
  3. Several "Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA)" forms. We provide you these forms and directions on how to fill them out.  They aren't hard to fill out!

Regarding 1. and 2. above:  If you need to add additional job specific issues to the manual, we can help you with that as well. In addition to the top 16 components we have an additional 35 USACE Chapters/Components that you (or we) can insert on the back end of the Abbreviated Manual. See below, for list of USACE Chapters available. As a matter of fact, we have over 160 different/additional Safety Chapters that you (or we) can insert on the back end of the manual.  Please scroll to bottom of this website to view the 160+ Upgrade Chapters List

As we said earlier, YOU need to fill out and provide YOUR COMPANY , SITE-SPECIFIC , "ACTIVITY HAZARD ANALYSIS" (AHA) Forms to the Abbreviated APP that we will provide you. The reason we don't provide the filled out forms is obvious:

This is your job.  But we do provide you with the "AHA" form, and instuctions on how to fill them out. They aren't hard to fill out!

We will customize your Abbreviated APP Safety Manual and will include your Company name within the text.  We will also email the manual over to you TODAY in an hour or two!  

YES,  you will recieve your manual TODAY, by email!

The page count of this abbreviated manual @ 93 pages, but your final manual to the USACE may well be over 100.  But it  "is what it is", and you will make it accurate and site specific, which is what the US Army Corps of Engineers wants.  The manual you prepare and submit separates you from the "wanna be's" that only fuss and complain, but don't get the contract!

The price for our basic, Abbreviated APP manual, with your name included, is only $499.95

Which brings us to this point:  Suppose you need more than the Abbreviated APP with the 16 components?  

We can build you a manual that will include the Abbeviated APP  ($499.95) and any chapter you want included for only $30 a chapter, extra. 

We will :

What other chapters do you need? Please see the list of USACE chapters, below,  in the Expanded APP Table, and the additional + 160 Safety  Upgrade Chapters further below~

Please call Frank at 800-205-1050 if you have any questions or for a price quote.  We would like to help you!

Our Expanded APP Details:  The Expanded APP, if you need to submit it,  is a lot more thorough and can be several hundred pages long, depending on the work involved and the complexity and hazards that may be encountered.  Our Microsoft WORD "Expanded APP" template is over 900 pages long!  But your manual won't include everything our template has in it.  So you'll need to delete what doesn't apply.

AND you will need to add you own, site specific, Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) forms....

USACE  Expanded APP to include 51 Chapters

Our Expanded APP includes many of the same components as the Abbreviated APP, but it addresses more issues.  Our Expanded APP has over 50 components. The components highlighted in color Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, below, are already in the Abbreviated APP.

We can add any of these below chapters to your Abbreviated APP for only $30 per chapter!
