Safety Program Toolkit


This Safety & Health Program Version 1.0 is a model designed for small to medium-sized home builders and general contractors. It contains the materials needed to effortlessly set up a successful, company-wide safety program. It can also be customized to reflect the particular circumstances of each jobsite.

This practical, hands-on guide will be revised periodically to ensure it includes the latest information builders need, including new regulatory compliance guidelines. Download the sections below to combine into a comprehensive safety program and use the additional forms in the execution of the program. For more safety resources, see NAHB's Video Toolbox Talks and Safety Toolkits.
