Jobsites Pause for COVID-19 Safety; Focus Continues at IBSx

Events Icon

Home building jobsites all over the country stopped work the week of Jan. 11 to educate workers and subcontractors on proper coronavirus safety measures as hundreds of NAHB member companies and HBAs participated in the second national COVID-19 Jobsite Safety Stand Down.

Even with vaccine distribution in full swing across the country, the holidays presented a troubling opportunity for the virus to spread. NAHB and its partners in the Construction Industry Safety Coalition agreed that it was time to remind home builders of the importance of continued diligence to keep members safe and stop community spread.

With materials created and provided by the coalition, home builders, subcontractors, building suppliers, HBAs, and other associated businesses provided focused education on what workers on job sites should do to keep themselves healthy and flatten the curve for everyone.

See a few selected pictures below of builders holding their safety stand downs earlier this month. And remember: Any day is a good day to review COVID-19 and other safety procedures on the jobsite.

Safety will also be an important part of the IBSx virtual experience next month, Feb. 9-12. Tickets for the expo floor, which provides access to more than 200 IBS exhibits and more than 130 at KBIS, are free to NAHB members and just $50 for non-members. While you are exploring the IBS exhibitors, be sure to check out the virtual booth of our safety sponsor, Builders Mutual.

Not only will there be great safety content, including daily demos, but the winners of the 2020 SAFE Awards will be featured in a video in the Builders Mutual booth. Register today for IBSx and see some of the great featured safety products and services.
