SAFETY FORUM PROGRAM
The mission of the CEA Building Industry Safety Forum Program is to provide educational and networking opportunities for our safety officers and jobsite personnel of member firms.
The CEA Building Industry Safety Forum Program was started in February of 1997 to provide an opportunity for safety officers and jobsite personnel of member firms to be involved in discussions and workshops and attend seminars where safety professionals speak on important issues relating to the building construction industry. Forums and seminars have been held on such topics as Subcontractor Compliance with Cal-OSHA Requirements; New OSHA Regulations & Policies re: Multi-Employer Jobsites; Hazard Communication; How to Conduct Effective Jobsite Meetings; Crane Safety and Scaffold Safety; The General Contractor's Role and Responsibilities in the Multi-Employer Jobsite Environment Relating to Subcontractors' Work & the Impact of Assembly Bill 1127; and Fall Protection.
In addition to administering the program, the CEA Safety Forum Program Steering Committee has also been participating in Cal-OSHA's Standards Board proceedings. Committee members monitor the Standards Board agendas for construction related regulation changes and variances being considered and propose a position for CEA to adopt and present to the board as a construction industry representative.
The CEA Safety Forum Program has also been successful in allowing safety officers of member firms to network and share ideas on industry safety issues to enhance their companies' safety programs.
Forums and committee meetings are held quarterly. If you have any questions or would like to participate in the CEA Building Industry Safety Forum Program, please contact Cindy Sato.
