TUMWATER – Construction work remains one of the toughest jobs around and having the right training and equipment is critical to job safety. Construction industry workers, owners and supervisors have an opportunity to focus on industry-specific training at the fifth annual Construction Safety Day on Wednesday, May 2.

This year’s event will be held from 7 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. at the Puyallup Fairgrounds Pavilion.

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, six workers died in Washington state due to construction-related accidents. Many more were seriously injured.

In addition to demonstrations on cranes, job-site equipment and tools, an exhibit hall, and health and wellness booth, this year’s Construction Safety Day will have workshops for workers, owners and supervisors on:

  • Silica and Dust Collection: Know how it affects your health
  • Anchors and Installation Certification Update
  • Fall Protection Rules
  • Rescue Considerations in Fall Protection, Fire Protection, Excavation and Trenching

See the Registration Brochure for more information about the workshops. 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.

For more information, send an e-mail to GovSafetyConf@Lni.wa.gov or call 360-902.5446.
