Safety Committee

Purpose Statement

The National Framers Council Safety Committee will take an industry leadership role on educating framers on standardized safety practices, procedures and guidelines that are accepted as being the most effective across the entire framing industry. Through its ongoing development of the FrameSAFE program, as well as involvement in a variety of safety initiatives with OSHA and other organizations, the Safety Committee’s goal is for all framers to “Work safely” and “Go home safely.”
