2012 Build Safe │ Live Safe Conference
We kicked off the 8th annual Construction
Safety Week with the Department's
Build Safe / Live Safe conference at the
Marriott Marquis in Times Square! On
Monday, Commissioner Robert LiMandri
and Deputy Mayor for Operations Cas Holloway
opened the event. During the safety
summit, a dozen Department experts focused on a
host of topics, including 3D Site Safety Plans, which we are now
accepting as part of a new program to
improve safety. Construction Safety Week also
included an expanded Homeowner's and
Tenant's Night in each borough
office, and we continued our Experience Is Not Enough safety campaign by
distributing bracelets and posters —
reminding workers they must always use
fall protection, no matter how long
they've been in construction.
