Final Safety & Health Report for 2017

A Personal Message from Tammy

As we wrap up another NAWIC year, I just want to say that I have enjoyed my time as Chair for the Safety & Health Awareness Committee. And I want to give a shout-out to Leah Curran, my Co-Chair, without whom our committee could not have accomplished what we did! We had some communication challenges over the year, but I believe were able to bring the committee to a new level of quality, excellence, and communication, reflective of a professional industry organization.

My number one goal this past year has been to provide our members, and member companies, a great return on their NAWIC investment, just through the safety and health information provided to them through our committee. We have provided materials in the form of uploaded power points and informational documents, as well as an industry-first webinar regarding step-by-step silica compliance (a “how-to” guide, not just silica information). All of this information is available on the committee page of the national website. Feel free to use it to help your organization better understand certain topics, and to provide training to your employees. This information alone is worth thousands of dollars!

We have also worked hard to provide streamlined applications for the safety awards that level the playing field, whether your organization is a specialty trade contractor, or a large GC firm. It shouldn’t matter when it comes to safety performance.

I hope to see many of you in Anaheim in just a couple of weeks! If you will be there, please introduce yourself to me at the committee networking event!
