See more More news releases

TUMWATER Worksite safety for home renovation crews and the hazards of confined spaces are among the topics to be covered at the fourth annual Construction Safety Day on Wednesday, May 4.

This year's event for those in construction will be held from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Enumclaw Expo Center in South King County.

Construction Safety Day is co-sponsored by the Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Advisory Board and the Department of Labor & Industries as a way to promote safety in the construction industry. Despite improvements in equipment and training, construction remains a hazardous occupation. Last year, seven workers died in Washington state due to construction-related accidents.

In addition to demonstrations on forklift safety, fall protection, and a 'vibration station' where attendees can wear gloves that measure the vibration of handheld tools while drilling on concrete blocks, this year's Construction Safety Day will offer workshops for supervisors and workers on:

  • The state's Dig Law
  • Fire extinguisher training
  • Tool safety
  • Confined space management
  • Renovation safety

Visit www.wagovconf.org/events/construction-safety-day/ for a complete list of the workshops, exhibits and demonstrations being offered. Registration is $55 in advance or $65 at the door. There is a $10 per person discount for groups of five or more. Visit www.regonline.com/wagovconf-csd to register online.
