AWCI Releases New Safety Publication

The Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry has released “Safe Work Practices for Wall & Ceiling Industry Construction Workers, an AWCI Safety Resource,” a publication on best practices for construction site safety.

Targeted to construction professionals in the wall and ceiling industry, the 28-page document provides summaries of safety best practices and principles on 41 potential hazards in the drywall and plastering fields. The subject matter ranges from aerial lifts to welding and includes several topics specific to drywall construction, such as drywall carts and stilts.

The information provided is a quick read and easy to understand, and is useful for toolbox-talk presentations as well as a year-round resource. It is available as a free download for all interested parties.

“Because of the importance of safety to our members and to the broader construction community, we chose to make this resource free for both AWCI members and non-members,” said Michael Stark, CEO of AWCI. “AWCI is working to raise awareness of safety and health issues across the wall and ceiling construction industry, and this is one of several initiatives focused on doing just that.”
