Nevada Builders Blueprint
April 2019


Aaron Headshot
From the CEO 
Along with all the other legislation we are tracking, the Assembly Judiciary Committee has introduced AB 421 which proposes to reverse the positive changes made to Nevada's Construction Defect Law in 2015.  In the last four years we have seen fewer frivolous law suits, home defects actually getting repaired and more carriers and options for general liability insurance. The reforms implemented in 2015 are having a positive impact on current and future homeowners during the current housing crunch and are helping our industry supply housing diversity to meet market demands.  Look for a call to action when the hearing is scheduled...

Caution High Winds
High Winds Safety

High Winds can become a major safety concern for construction workers in many ways. We all know how powerful winds can affect our neighborhoods by blowing trash cans and various materials all around and in some cases causing damage to vehicles, homes and businesses.
Now look at the construction site. We have materials that are staged in temporary positions such as wood and light metals, to name a few, that may be unsecured from being blown around and possibly striking surrounding property or workers on the site. If you have ever seen sheets of plywood becoming airborne and flying at high speed as if they were playing cards being flung into the air and scattered about, you would understand why it is important to secure all materials that can be blown away. Not only is it a job in itself to recover scattered materials but it is a situation asking for trouble if not addressed before the winds cause damage and unsafe conditions.
What about scaffolding? Many scaffolding accidents occur due to wind load lifting from underneath the scaffold paltforms and tipping over the whole system sometimes injuring workers or damaging neaby buildings and vehicles.
And last, hoisting materials and working at height. An assessment of the job tasks for the day should be reconsidered if high winds are present or expected
. Jobs that involve hoisting of materials or having workers working on elevated surfaces should be controlled or eliminated to prevent tip over of equipment, failure to hoist safely, or worker falls to lower levels.
These are just a few topics of concern when dealing with high winds. There is so much more to consider. If high winds are occurring or are expected at your worksite, you should be asking yourself, is it safe to proceed with the work we have planned today?
