The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) named the recipients of the 15th annual NAHB/Builders Mutual Insurance Company Safety Award for Excellence (SAFE) for their commitment to strong safety programs.

This year’s SAFE program honors individuals and companies that have worked to achieve exemplary safety and health programs in the residential construction industry.

“Every year, the achievements of the SAFE Award winners seem to get more impressive,” said Juli Bacon, NAHB Construction Safety and Health Committee chair and consultant from Woodinville, Wash. “In this very challenging year, it is no different. Even as pandemic safety took center stage, these companies continued to innovate in the area of traditional job site safety.”
