Home News NAHB accepting entries for SAFE Awards

Washington—The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is now accepting applications for the 2013 NAHB/Builders Mutual Insurance Co. Safety Award For Excellence (SAFE). The awards program recognizes home builders and contractors who have developed and implemented high quality workplace safety programs, and also honors government officials and NAHB-affiliated associations who work to advance safety in the home building industry.

“Jobsite safety is of critical importance to our industry, and these awards were created to recognize those who go above and beyond in putting safety first,” said NAHB chairman Rick Judson, a home builder from Charlotte, N.C. “We are proud to honor those professionals who have raised the bar in promoting safe working conditions and injury prevention.”

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

Award categories include Safety Program of the Year for single-family builders, remodelers, specialty trade contractors, multifamily builders and more.

For a list of categories, requirements and an online nomination form, visit nahb.org/SAFE. Applications are due by Nov. 15, 2013.

Award winners will be recognized at a ceremony during the 2014 NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas on Feb. 3, 2014.
