Greetings National Capital Chapter members,

The season’s upon us, it’s that time of year!  I hope you have plans this holiday season to get some well-deserved rest and relaxation.  It’s an opportunity for both you and your employees and clients to recharge, remember all that we have achieved this year, and look forward to continuously improved safety performance for 2019.

Please remember to communicate the importance of mindfully approaching safety, not only in the workplace, but also at home and on the road.  We are engaged in a different set of tasks at this time of year:  decorating, cooking, traveling, and all the hazards we face while doing so.  It is important that we go about these tasks with the same safety mindset, and we need to consciously reward ourselves and others when we do it the right way. Positive reinforcement goes much further to encourage safe behaviors, so no need to be a safety Grinch this season!

There is still time to register for our FREE seminar next week on Prevention through Design in Construction:  A Building Life Cycle Approach, delivered by our own Past-President Mike McCullion, CSP, ARM.  This is sure to be an excellent topic!

While you are on our website, be sure to check out our upcoming events in the New Year, including an ANSI A92 Mobile Elevating Work Platforms Standard Update in January, a discussion on Safety Liability at Multi-Employer Worksites in February, our annual Lunch and Learn in March, and of course the Mid-Atlantic Construction Safety Conference in April. We are looking forward to continually bringing you excellent content in 2019!

As always, we welcome your feedback. Please do not hesitate to reach out if there is a topic you would like to see (or speak about) at any of our upcoming chapter meetings.

Have a safe week, and Happy Holidays!

Matt Law, MPH, CSP, REHS – National Capital Chapter President
