NAHB Seeks Entries for Home Builder Safety Award

THE National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is calling for entries for the 2007 Safety Award For Excellence (SAFE), which recognizes home builders who develop outstanding work site safety programs.

The award honors the achievements of builders and trade contractors that have developed and implemented high-quality construction safety programs, as well as those government officials and NAHB-affiliated associations who have made successful efforts to advance safety in the home building industry.

"NAHB is a national leader in residential construction safety, and this award program both honors exemplary safety behaviors practiced by home builders and encourages others to adopt similar programs in their work sites," said NAHB President Brian Catalde, a builder from El Segundo, Calif.

In last year's inaugural program, 19 winners in 16 categories were cited for their safety achievements.

NAHB member companies in good standing that build residential homes or town homes using light construction methods can apply for a SAFE award. Specialty trade contractors, remodelers and light commercial and multifamily builders, as well as NAHB-affiliated associations and federal or state OSHA officials who have been nominated by an NAHB member or association, also are welcome to apply.

Awards will be made in a variety of categories. For a detailed listing, as well as eligibility requirements and an online application, visit http://www.nahb.org/SAFE. Applications must be received no later than Oct. 5.
