NICA has recently completed a 5 video series on Health Hazards in Renovations!   The Overview video contains the general information Contractors must have to consider taking homes that may have asbestos, lead, mold, or silica in them (which is almost all older homes).
Though their are hundreds of regulations for asbestos, lead, mold, and silica, this programs focuses on the things you can do to actually keep your workers safe.  Good containment, low dust work practices, proper PPE, and decontamination is the key to protecting the public, owners, and workers from the long term health effects of these materials.  We created short best practice videos on all these topics.  Asbestos awareness and Lead in Construction training (L&I based) is required for all employees who may work with around asbestos or with lead, so be sure and download the training materials we developed at http://nicasafety.com/health-hazards/ Check out our videos out at https://www.youtube.com/user/nicasafetychannel.

Funding and support for this project provided by State of Washington, Department of Labor and Industries, Safety and Health Investments Projects.   See lni.wa.gov/safety for more information on worker safety.

TIME TO SUPERCHARGE YOUR SAFEY PROGRAM FOR 2016!

As you start the new year, supercharge your safety program by using the NICA monthly safety plan as a basis for your weekly safety program.    Though this does not cover every aspect of residential construction, it includes 12 written plans such as Accident Prevention, Fall Protection, PPE, Heat Stress, Respiratory, GHS HAZCOM, and Excavation and Trenching.

2014-Safety-Plan-CoverThe purpose of the plan is to help your company build a safety culture, rather than just struggling to comply.

The plan won’t do you any good unless you actually ‘do’ the things inside, so take the time not only to read each section, but to thoroughly train your employees and provide them with the proper PPE and equipment to safely do their jobs.

This plan has a digital format you can download from nicasafety.com with live links to training resources, forms, and other materials.   We also will have copies of the printed calendar version available at Contractor Training Days (you can get multiple copies).  We will not be able to send out copies, you must download the calendar or attend a FREE Contractor Training Day to get your copies.
