WASHINGTON, D.C. – August 5, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is now accepting applications for the 2014 NAHB/Builders Mutual Insurance Company Safety Award For Excellence (SAFE). This awards program recognizes the achievements of builders and trade contractors who have developed and implemented high quality construction safety programs, and honors government officials and NAHB-affiliated associations and student chapters that have made successful efforts to advance safety in the home building industry.
