Signing Event September 27 at Construction Site in Arvada
DENVER -- A partnership between the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Metro Denver will identify and abate home construction site hazards and prevent hazards by educating workers on proper safety procedures. A signing event will be held Tuesday, Sept. 27 in Arvada.
The "Home Safe Colorado Partnership" expands from one covering the seven-county area of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson Counties to projects throughout Colorado. HBA contractors have agreed to take responsibility for the safety and health of their sub-contractors in this unique agreement.
OSHA Colorado Area Directors Herb Gibson and John Healy will sign for the department, with HBA President Mark Krivel and Job Site Safety Chairman Brent Errickson representing the HBA.
Key to the new program is the Home Safe Ten-Point List: A Guide to Safe Work Practices booklet in both English and Spanish that will be used by all Home Safe partners to meet or exceed OSHA construction standards and protect their workers.
Home Safe Colorado follows on two previous partnerships in 1998 and 2002 and is designed to reduce accidents and workers' compensation claims in the home building industry.
