After a very successful debut
in Las Vegas at IBS 2019, the IBS Jobsite Safety Zone is not only returning to the International Builders' Show, it's nearly doubling in size to accommodate the interest from exhibitors and attendees.
The IBS Jobsite Safety Zone began as a partnership between NAHB’s official safety sponsor, Builders Mutual Insurance Company
, and the Job-Site Safety Institute (JSI)
to showcase the latest workplace safety solutions with daily microlearning presentations and exhibitors specializing in cutting-edge construction safety products.
"The inaugural Safety Zone at the last IBS was really extraordinary," said Mike Gerber, president of JSI. "Home builders are genuinely interested in safety, and they want to see products specifically designed with safety in mind and participate in education sessions with safety leaders."
Like last year, IBS 2020 attendees will enjoy the opportunity to “Ask the Safety Pro,” where nationally recognized construction safety experts will be available to answer tough construction safety questions. The SAFE Awards will be presented once again in the Safety Zone.
New for the IBS 2020 Safety Zone are safety product showcases — short demonstrations of general and specialty safety products — running 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily for the duration of IBS. There is also an expanded offering of education sessions available and, of course, more exhibitors.
On Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 3 p.m., sponsor Builders Mutual will present the Jobsite Safety Innovation Spotlight, a special session highlighting some key innovations in safety products and techniques.
The Safety Zone will be located in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, once again near the High Performance Building Zone, home to many demonstrations and learning sessions
The IBS Jobsite Safety Zone is an extension of the Safety 365 campaign
to provide information and resources to help keep construction workers safe and eliminate preventable accidents and citations. Stop by to visit the NAHB staff and sponsors that keep safety at the top of home builders’ minds.
