The Construction Safety & Health Committee provides NAHB members and state and local associations with assistance and resources to help builders operate safe job sites, comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, and lower workers' compensation costs through injury prevention.
The committee guides the association’s legislative and regulatory policy actions as it relates to occupational safety and health reform to ensure that OSHA regulations are practical, feasible, cost effective, and have a positive impact on worker safety.
To better educate and inform the home builders on common safety and health hazards that occur during the residential construction process, the committee also focuses on developing and delivering safety training and OSHA compliance assistance materials specific to the residential construction industry.
NAHB has also partnered with Builders Mutual Insurance Company to host the Safety Award for Excellence (SAFE) Awards Program that recognizes member companies, workers, and other individuals for the excellent safety programs that make them leaders in the residential construction industry.
