Applications and calls for nominations are now open for the 2010 Safety Award for Excellence (SAFE).
Winners will be honored at a special awards program on Jan. 13 during the 2011 International Builders’ Show in Orlando.
SAFE was launched in 2006 by the NAHB Construction Safety and Health Committee to recognize builders and trade contractors who have excellent construction safety programs and also honor individuals who have advanced safety in the home building industry.
The SAFE awards program has recognized more than 65 safety professionals, home builders, contractors and industry representatives who have worked to enhance the safety and health of the residential construction industry.
Sponsorship opportunities for this prestigious awards ceremony are also available.
The high-profile sponsorship of this event will put select companies in front of decision makers from across all segments of the construction industry.

In an effort to increase job site safety and reduce the chance of job related accidents, NAHB has produced the “Fall Protection Video, English-Spanish” and “NAHB-OSHA Fall Protection Handbook, English-Spanish.”
Both are available through BuilderBooks.com.
The 30-minute “Fall Protection Video, English-Spanish” can be used by builders to train workers to use safe work practices that eliminate fall hazards and comply with OSHA fall-protection standards.
The “NAHB-OSHA Fall Protection Handbook, English-Spanish” provides guidelines for creating a written fall-protection plan and identifying safe work practices that can prevent costly accidents and injuries. Written with clear text, photographs and illustrations, the book serves as a user-friendly resource for promoting safety on any job site.
