"When it comes to Safety: Information, Education and Knowledge are Power! The Home Safe Colorado program is the “Go To” educational resource for all residential construction professionals. The program has been designed to strengthen a company’s aptitude in the safety sector. The program offers assistance based on OSHA compliance training and graduates to the development of a complete safety program tailored to a company’s specific needs.  The value of the Home Safe Colorado program will promote benefits that will hopefully minimize the risk of injury to our Colorado workforce and create a “Nobody Gets Hurt Today” mindset." - Jeff Palumbo, Shea Homes CO, Safety and Environmental Manager

About the Job Site Safety Committee/HomeSafe® Colorado

What does this committee do?

The JobSite Safety Committee works to minimize construction job site hazards and risks. Among its efforts is HomeSafe® Colorado, a first-of-its-kind program that began as a partnership between the HBA of Metro Denver and OSHA. 

The JobSite Safety Committee is comprised of an experienced team of professionals dedicated to promoting and developing safe working environments in the home building industry. JobSite Safety Committee and HomeSafe® Colorado work collectively to facilitate the goal of accident and injury free job sites by providing EDUCATION, TRAINING, SAFETY CERTIFICATIONS, and PEER SUPPORT.

The HomeSafe® program offers employers in the State of Colorado home building industry voluntary development and implementation of effective work-site safety and health programs, typically resulting in measurable reductions in work related injuries, illnesses, deaths and overall business operational costs.

Events from our partners at OSHA! 

Safe and Sound week is June 12-19, 2017 and is a nation-wide effort to raise awareness and understanding of the value of workplace safety and health programs that include management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards in the workplace. 

Successful safety and health programs can proactively identify and manage workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness and improve sustainability and the bottom line.  

Please visit the OSHA website for additional information.

Businesses and organizations are invited to raise awareness of trenching and excavation hazards by holding a safety stand-down during the week of June 19-24. The campaign, sponsored by the National Utility Contractors Association and the Safety Ambassadors Club with support from OSHA, encourages contractors, municipalities, the military and others involved in trenching operations to temporarily stop work and offer workers education and training about trenching hazards. According to the latest available data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the fatality rate in the U.S. for excavation work is 112 percent higher than in general construction. Visit the Stand-Down website to learn how you can stand-down this month to save lives.
