"These awards were created to honor those who go above and beyond making safety a priority in our industry," said NAHB Chairman Barry Rutenberg, a home builder from Gainesville, Fla. "We are pleased to be able to recognize the advances in jobsite safety programs, and those industry professionals who have taken strides to improve safety in the industry."
NAHB member companies in good standing that build residential homes or town homes using light construction methods are eligible to apply. Specialty trade contractors, remodelers and light commercial and multifamily builders, as well as NAHB-affiliated associations and federal or state occupational safety and health officials who have been nominated by an NAHB member or association, are also welcome to participate.
Award categories include Safety Program of the Year for single-family builders, remodelers, specialty trade contractors, multifamily builders and more.
