NAHB To Honor Outstanding Work Site Safety Programs

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2008 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Safety Award For Excellence (SAFE), which provides recognition for home builders who develop outstanding work site safety programs.

"The home builders and housing industry professionals who have received SAFE awards during the past two programs are an outstanding representation of the commitment to safe behavior and safety education practiced by NAHB members across the country," said Buck Roberts, chair of the NAHB Construction Safety & Health Committee http://www.nahb.org/page.aspx/category/sectionID=54 and a builder from Anderson, S.C. "We look forward to recognizing many more safety best practices in Las Vegas in January in the 2008 SAFE awards."

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

A list of categories, nomination requirements and an online application can be accessed online at http://www.nahb.org/award_details.aspx?awardID=835. The nomination period closes Oct. 13, 2008.

NAHB member companies in good standing that build residential homes or town homes using light construction methods can nominate themselves 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 are also eligible for awards if they are nominated by an NAHB member or affiliated association.

Award winners will be recognized during the NAHB Safety Award For Excellence (SAFE) Banquet http://www.nahb.org/meeting_details.aspx?meetingID=11475 on Jan. 20, 2009 at the Shimmer Theater in the Las Vegas Hilton in Las Vegas, Nev., as a part of the International Builders' Show http://www.buildersshow.com/Home.
