Jobsite Safety/HomeSafe® Colorado

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.

"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."
