The National Maintenance Agreements Policy Committee is pleased to present the 8th annual Zero Injury Safety Awards, the most prestigious safety award program in the construction industry.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday, October 29, 2008, at the National Building Museum, located at 401 F Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20001. A cocktail reception will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and dinner will begin at 7:30 p.m.

We will honor more than 20 million work-hours performed injury-free on industrial construction projects covered by national maintenance agreements. This is the highest number of hours ever - more than double the number in 2006 - and represents a significant shift away from "the old days" when injuries were an accepted reality on construction sites.

If you have questions related to the Zero Injury Safety Awards, please feel free to contact Mr. Jacob Snyder at (703) 841-9707 extension 127. Press inquiries should be directed to Lisa Tanger at (703) 524-3336 x124.
