Jobsite safety is a key area of focus for NAHB. The health and safety of workers and subcontractors is top-of-mind every single day.
NAHB partnered with Builders Mutual to create an initiative, Safety 365, that provides resources to help keep construction workers safe and eliminate preventable accidents, injuries, and deaths.Its focus is to support construction safety every day — 365 days a year: #safety365.
NAHB’s educational resources, safety training materials, and other content are intended 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 (OSHA) requirements. The Construction Safety and Health Committee directs NAHB's safety efforts.
