The Department’s Build Safe│Live Safe Conference (Thursday, May 10, 2018) is a daylong series of seminars, where Department experts discuss industry trends and highlight safe construction operations.

During Construction Safety Week (May 7-11), Department staff will visit construction sites to promote safety during our annual multi-lingual Experience is Not Enough campaign.  "Our highest priority is to promote safe worksites and protect the public, a responsibility we take very seriously," says Buildings Commissioner Rick Chandler.  "No building is worth a life, and that’s a belief every person in the development industry should keep in mind whenever they step onto a construction site."
