Sixth-Annual Construction Safety Week Starts This Monday By SEO Admin on April 24, 2010

The New York City Buildings Departments Construction Safety Week has, since 2005, been a week-long series of events aimed at raising awareness about safe construction practices. Construction-related fatalities dropped 84% in 2009 when compared to 2008, and these events are a critical way to continue that trend. This year Construction Safety Week will run from April 26 to April 30, 2010. Events during the week will include construction site visits to discuss safety issues with workers, information seminars to review construction trends and specific operations and community meetings in all five boroughs. This years seminars are Maintaining Safety at Stalled Construction Sites, Requirements for Site Safety Professionals and Special Inspections, Safe Practices at High Rise Construction Sites, Building in a Dense Urban Environment, and Safety and Sustainability in the Building Code & Zoning Resolution. Registration is required to attend the seminars. Also scheduled are Community Meetings with the Borough Presidents of Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.

We wrote previously about New York City's urbanSHED International Design Competitionto replace the typical sidewalk sheds built over public space to protect pedestrians during construction activity - currentlywooden structures usually painted blue. The winner was first-year University of Pennsylvania architecture student Young-Hwan Choi. The urbanSHED competition will award Mr. Choi with a $10,000 prize, and the Alliance for Downtown New York will fund the construction and installation of a full-scale prototype of the design at a job site in Lower Manhattan.
