NAHB is extending its Safety 365 campaign past the end of this year and into 2019 with the launch of the Safety Zone, a unique exhibit and demonstration space at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) Feb. 19-21 in Las Vegas.
The Job-Site Safety Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to conducting safety research for the construction industry, and Builders Mutual Insurance Co., which sponsors the Safety 365 campaign, are planning a full slate of educational sessions that spotlight ways to keep workers and subs safer on the jobsite – the focus of this year’s program.
The Safety Zone is a continuation of these efforts, show planners said.
The campaign has highlighted NAHB’s vast array of educational resources and safety training materials to help educate employers and workers on the various safety and health hazards the industry faces on the jobsite, and to better understand and comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements.
Because it offers space to exhibitors that wish to showcase new tools and products that promote home building safety, the new Safety Zone helps bring the campaign full circle, said NAHB Construction Safety and Health Committee Chair J. Gary Hill, a home builder and developer from Greensboro, N.C.
“Bringing the Safety Zone to the Show is a tremendous opportunity to connect the industry-leading exhibitors and the residential construction end-users that will take safety in this industry to the next level,” he said.
